It's been good so far, with new features being added periodically.
Next up, the Google Pay and Pay Send apps are joining forces to let you send or request money to friends right from the Google Pay app, if you live in the U.S. (this is coming soon to the UK).
Google Pay allows users to pay with their phones in stores, on the web, as well as in apps, reducing the need to carry a wallet everywhere. Now, the desktop version (pay.google.com) has received the same facelift as the app. You can also use the app to split the bill with up to five other people. After selecting, users can enter a dollar amount and tap request or send. Google Pay (which was formerly Android Pay, which was formerly Google Wallet) is getting rolled up into a single app, and it's getting boarding pass support. They can then pay you back how much they owe you. Additionally, several airlines and ticket sellers have already been offering digital tickets for years now, so now you can keep them all in one place. Previously consolidated under "Cards", this new view lists tickets, loyalty program cards, and gift cards. Currently, only Ticketmaster and Southwest are supported, but support is planned for more services. These include Eventbrite, Singapore Airlines, and Vueling. You can find these saved in the Android application's new "Passes" tab. We also know more brands and services will be integrated with Google Pay so expected related announcements in the coming months.
Given Google's account base and the reality that most folks have one, Google Pay's peer-to-peer payment effort could garner momentum.
