The revamped app subsumes Google Send, now letting users make peer-to-peer payments, and also permits saving mobile tickets and boarding passes

Google Pay is streamlining its functions by installing pay-and-request services for up to five people at a time. These updates have been in the making for a while on the Google calendar but now are officially going live in the app itself.

Being able to split bills in-app will effectively make Google Pay Send obsolete, although there is no official plan to phase the redundant application out. Along with making payments easier, Google Pay will also be capable of housing mobile tickets and boarding passes.

Users can access Google Pay on the iOS app or simply via the web, democratizing its platform compatibility and letting people update their information on the web, then check it in the app, for example. Google's integration of everything its users want into one place ultimately makes for a more convenient user experience as well as a less cluttered phone.
