Google has announced that it is merging its Android Pay and Google Wallet into a new service called Google Pay.

With this new system, your payment information will be saved in your Google account and will then be available to use everywhere you use Google products.

Google says "over the coming weeks, you'll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends".

The next time you make a purchase from Google or from any of its partners - Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart and other services - you'll see Google Pay as an option.

If you did not pre-order the game digitally, you'll need to redeem the code for the Black Dog cosmetic pack in the store. Players are free to stream, create videos, share clips, take screenshots or do anything else their minds come up with.

But the new system Google Pay brings all this under one umbrella, which the company says should make buying and paying through Google much less confusing. Considering Android and Google's reach that number is expected to grow significantly.

Built on the government-supported Unified Payments Interface (UPI), Tez allows users to make payments straight from their bank accounts.

Google says the initiative is meant to provide consumers with a consistent and simpler way to pay for purchases, whether online or on the high street. This will necessitate them to remain separate. When you think about it, that wasn't a very versatile brand for mobile payments. Consolidating the two services should enable people to link their credit or debit card to a single Google Pay account and either pay for groceries or send money to a friend as a birthday gift.

Does the simplification of Google's various payment services ease your mind? Also falling under Google Pay is Google Check out, the web-centric PayPal competitor. Google Wallet was the first NFC payment system for smartphones, and later it was rebranded to Android Pay with the Wallet sticking around as a P2P payment system.
