"If you've ever paid for groceries with Android Pay, used Chrome to automatically fill in your payment info, or purchased an app on Google Play, then you've already experienced some of the ways Google helps you pay for things online and in stores", he wrote.

Continuing with its policy of "fragmentation and consolidation", Google announced that it is merging Google Wallet, Android Pay and a myriad of other services under a single platform.

With Google Pay, the company ensures their Android users the easiest method of money sending, receiving, paying out with saved information on their Google accounts. He said the products being brought together include Android Pay (Google's mobile payments and loyalty platform) and Google Wallet (its peer-to-peer payments app).

In a company blog post, VP of product management for payments Pali Bhat described this as more of a rebranding than a change to the underlying products or technology.

Dave Glaser, chief product officer, Global eCom at Worldpay - one of the official launch partners for Google Pay - says: "Google Pay addresses one of the biggest barriers for mobile commerce today - the inconvenience of entering card details".

"We look forward to working with Google as they grow this exciting new payment platform".

This all-new Google Pay branding was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 event being held in Las Vegas.

Android Pay was primarily created to allow people to make simple and secure payments from their mobile phones. With Google Tez, users can pay directly from their bank accounts which means, there's no need to open a separate account or worry about reloading wallets. Instead, Google opted to go a different path by launching Google Tez, an app that now lets you make bill payments.

Google rebrands yet another service.
