Google Pay now supports peer-to-peer payments and mobile tickets

Google Pay now supports peer-to-peer payments and mobile tickets

Google Pay took another step closer to P2P rivals Venmo, Zelle, and Square Cash by introducing a bill-sharing and splitting service today.

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 USA (this is coming soon to the UK).

The tickets will live in the same Passes tab as your loyalty cards, gift cards, and offers in the Google Pay app for Android. Google announced boarding pass support at Google I/O 2018, and the feature has been in public testing for a few months, but now it appears to be entering wider availability. Do you use Google Pay often? The year started with us learning about Google's plan to rebrand all payment services into one and called it Google Play.

Google Pay Send, meanwhile, will fold into Google Pay and be laid to rest. 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. Google licenses its mobile operating system to smartphone and other device makers for free, with the goal of mass adoption compared to Apple's more premium approach. Especially with airline tickets, this dedicated view makes it easier to quickly pull up a boarding document. For a while now, Google's mobile payments solutions have inexplicably been split across two apps. Currently, only Ticketmaster and Southwest are supported, but support is planned for more services. You don't have to print tickets because you only need to show your phone.

Lastly, there's a web application where all your data is synced with your Google Account, so if you update your payment info on the web, it'll be reflected on your phone.

In June past year the European Union fined Google $2.7billion (£2.03billion) for supposedly ranking its proprietary shopping comparison service higher than its competitors.
