- Earn rewards for everyday payments
- Understand your spending & improve your financial health


Send & receive money
+ Transfer money easily to friends & family safely
+ Create a group to send and receive money for things like trips, dinner, bills, rent, and more. Google Pay will even help you do the math on who owes what.
+ Money transfers are instant and free with Google Pay balance. There are no fees if you use ACH to withdraw funds

Your shared payments stay with the group
+ When you send a payment with Google Pay, it’ll stay between you and your friends. Only the people involved in the transaction will see it.

Pay contactless
+ Pay with your phone anywhere contactless payments are accepted. Just unlock it, hold it to the reader, and go.

Connect with your favorite businesses and discover new ones
+ See businesses where you’ve used Google Pay when you open the app. Get quick access to your transactions, loyalty cards, and activate offers.

Discover nearby restaurants and order a meal
+ No need to toggle between different delivery apps. Explore places to eat, see menus, and order a meal for pickup or delivery with just a few taps.

Fuel your next adventure
+ Find nearby gas stations, see prices, and pay for fuel right from the app.

Take your phone for a ride
+ Pay contactless for transit rides where available. Just add a pass or set up a card, then use your phone to ride.

Shop online
+ Use Google Pay to checkout quickly and securely when you shop on websites and apps.


Manage your money
+ See the total balance from all of your eligible accounts in one payment app, so you’ll always know exactly what’s coming in and what’s going out.
+ Get reminders about upcoming bill payments.

Stay on top of your spending
+ Get weekly summaries, track trends over time, and see what you’ve spent at every business.

All your transactions, all together
+ With your permission, you can see activity from accounts you've linked. Import receipts from Gmail and Google Photos and then simply search for any of them.


Earn rewards you can use right away
+ Get cashback for things like paying and referring friends. Any money you receive will go straight to your balance so you can use it instantly.

Double down on cashback
+ Activate offers and get cashback for redeeming them – whether you use Google Pay or your plastic card. Better yet: get twice the rewards when you redeem with a cashback credit card.

Loyalty made easy
+ No more sign-up forms or punch cards. Easily enroll in loyalty and rewards programs from the app, then let Google Pay apply points and perks automatically.


Authentication for every payment
+ You'll need to use your fingerprint, pattern, PIN, or face to verify your identity each time you open the app or make a payment — only you can pay or send money

Keeping your private information safe
+ Try out a more personalized experience to see the most relevant offers from stores and get recommendations for ways to save. Turn it on or off at any time.
+ Manage and control personalization and other privacy settings like location preferences and contact syncing from settings

Your cards encrypted
+ When you pay cashless with your Android phone, Google Pay shares a unique Virtual Account Number instead of your actual card number with the business, so your payment info stays safe

So far, basically, seems like a 'take it or leave it' app/wallet/tool... But i guess this is really less about its usefullness or whether or not it saved my life, and more about the actual functionality of the app... That being said, it functions great! A plus on all fronts; userbility, navigation, compatibility, intergration, and security, while maintaining its user friendly appeal, all together delivering with a peace of mind.

Update: There was a marked improvement in the application over time. However, for a financial application it still does not show a simple thing: how much I paid. Specifically it shows payments WITHOUT tips. So you can not refer back to the transactions. Previously: 1 star. ... Good luck navigating MY finances. All about Google and affiliates. Asked for an unspecified PIN and declined the transaction. Then went ok in the next store. But I do not see the transaction in the app... No good. At all.

Seems if you have a problem with the app, you can't speak to anyone. I dialed their phone number to solve my issue with my smarttrip card, that I loaded 2 times, yet get the message that it fails. However I see that I was charged on my bank account. Now God help me!! I will uninstall the app, and stop using it altogether. At least credit card companies reply to your calls, not hang up on you and tell you to go to a web link.
