About this app

Google Pay is a simple, secure, and seamless way to pay and save, giving you helpful ways to do more with your money:

- Pay at your favorite places
- Send and receive money instantly
- Earn rewards for everyday payments
- Discover offers from your favorite places
- Understand your spending


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 your linked bank account 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 and activate offers.

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


A more rewarding way to shop
+ Get cashback for things like paying friends. Any money you receive will go straight to your Google Pay balance so you can use it instantly.
Take your rewards even further
+ 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.


Stay on top of your spending
+ See the total balance and weekly summaries from all of your eligible accounts in one place, so you’ll always know exactly what’s coming in and what’s going out.
+ View recent purchases and upcoming payments to see how you’re spending.

Access all your transactions with a simple search
+ 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.


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.

Overall, this is a really good app. Especially since the last update that requires users to unlock to use Google Pay. I wish they made access to the wallet a little easier. Currently, pay and insights are on a menu at the bottom but to access wallet you have to go to the menu at the top right, then open wallet. Wallet really needs to be at the bottom where Pay and Insights are located.

Definitely a nice feature if you forget your wallet,purse,debit card,etc., and absolutely have to have gas or something important! Only thing I really wish you could add as a feature would be that it would show you the balance/amount able to spend on each of the attached card accounts. Just a thought, idk if that's something you could even implement into the app, but I'm sure I'm not the only person who would benefit from a feature like that.

Right now I am having a hard time getting the app to work. Some store it works great, in others it declines. Almost as if it's not connecting to the wifi. But the last week I can't get it to connect at all. Even though my phone is connected and nothing else has changed. PLEASE FIX THE BUGS I am referring to the Google pay app.
