Google officially deploys its new features and strengthens its Pay application. In this update, it will be possible to store concert tickets and boarding tickets; it will also be possible to make financial transactions between friends.
No more Google Pay Send and Google Pay. From now on, just Google Pay. All Google Pay services are now available in a single application under a single name.
Google Pay then called “Pay With Google” was merely to facilitate online mobile payment using payment methods stored on its own Google accounts. At the same time, users could previously send and request money from their friends through the Google Pay Send application. From now on, this service will be directly available from Google Pay.
The update includes features that many people have been using for years through various services, including support for mobile ticketing and friend payments like Lydia or Apple Pay. Users can also share the addition of purchases and instantly ask their friends for money.
Access concert tickets, loyalty cards, gift cards and other airline tickets
In addition to transactions made possible by Google Pay, the service also provides access to concert tickets, loyalty cards, gift cards and other airline tickets if they have been saved on Ticketmaster or Southwest platforms. The number of “partner platforms” is expected to increase significantly over time and with the democratization (in other countries) of these functionalities.
In the field of ticketing and reservations stored on mobile phones, the Mountain View firm had fallen a long way behind. They are trying to catch up with their competitors, including Apple, which has been offering this service for several years already.
Please note that the update is only available in the United States. However, it is expected to be launched soon in the United Kingdom. No information was communicated concerning the other markets, so let us cross our fingers and hope that the deployment in France will be done quickly.
