Users Can Now Send and Request Money through Google Pay

Users Can Now Send and Request Money through Google Pay

July 10, 2018         Written By Lynn Oldshue

Google is finally migrating the Google Pay Send app into Google Pay. Users can send and request money through Google Pay without having to use a separate app to complete the transaction.

Earlier this year, Google combined Android Pay and Google Wallet into one comprehensive service called Google Pay. The app provides all the services of its former components, including the ability to store cards in a mobile wallet and pay for products in stores. The only feature that was missing was peer-to-peer money transfers, which remained part of Google Pay Send.

Another feature that got lost in transition was the ability to sort cards in the mobile wallet. Google resolved that matter in late May, so now users can organize credit and debit cards in Google Pay. The cards can be sorted in any order to make them easy to find during an in-store transaction.

The send and request function is currently only available in the United States, but it may be expanding to other markets in the future.

The latest update also includes the ability to store event tickets and boarding passes in the app. Industry experts first noticed signs of this feature back in April, but this is the first time Google has officially confirmed its functionality.
