Google combines Android Pay and Google Wallet for Google Pay

Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

The Google Pay will soon be supported by Chrome and Google Assistant.

Customers will be automatically switched over to Google Pay once their existing Android Pay app is updated in the coming weeks, and all their existing forms of payment will be linked to the new app, Mr Chen explained.

The new Google Pay app features a Home tab that makes it easy for users to view details about recent purchases and find stores and offers for purchase rewards.

The US technology giant has launched a new Google Pay application for its android users.

In the meantime, Google Wallet is temporary getting renamed as Google Pay Send until it will slowly get incorporated into Google Pay. Basically Google is bringing installments, passes, installment strategies all under one application, which is presently called Google Pay.

The new Google Pay app is part of Google's wider plan to bring mobile payment capabilities to every part of the Google environment, according to Gerardo Capiel, product management director for consumer payments, and Varouj Chitilian, engineering director for consumer payments. For instance, users have the option to set up Google Pay right from their own banking app as well even if they haven't installed the Google Pay app from the Play Store. If your phone lacks the hardware needed to run Google Pay (NFC protocols and the like), you'll be notified of the same as well.

XDA Developers are known for their inquisitiveness and their curiosity has led to the discovery of a new feature in Android P much before its commercial release. The cool thing is that there is more personalization here, which means it will know where you use the services the most and also know your location.

"If a User ID (UID) is idle (being in the background for more than certain amount of time) it should not be able to use the camera".

Currently, the Google Reply Beta app can only suggest a reply to some of the conditions like when you are in a vehicle, biking or running.

This progresses from privacy efforts introduced in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was the first Android-based operating system to prioritise applications in the foreground and user-visible activities, however this still afforded background applications the opportunity to make use of the device's hardware while idle.
