An update to Google Pay is currently rolling out that includes a change of name. In a blog post, the transition of Pay to Wallet is outlined, recognising the way we’re now using our phones:
Today, Google Pay app will become Google Wallet and support new digital items. Google Wallet will be available in Australia on Android and Wear OS and will standardise the way you save and access essential items such as payment and vaccine cards, transit and event tickets, boarding and loyalty passes.
The update also brings with it new security settings, allowing users to take better control of their settings. Everything from automatically importing passes from your Gmail, to easily reviewing purchases is easily controlled. The update is already rolling out and, if you check your Google Pay app, has probably already been updated. If not, you can head to the play store and update the app now.
