Google App Beta Gets Screenshot Editing Tools

Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

As mentioned earlier, Google Pay is the new mobile payments system and digital wallet by Google. The New York Times found previous year that over 250 apps for Android are tracking users via the devices' microphones and cameras for ad purposes. As pointed out by Android Police, Google added a feature in Android Oreo a year ago that is able to send notifications to users that informs them that an "app is running in the background". However, just like in Android Pay, the new app enables "card and payment information" to be stored in Google Pay across an array of apps and websites. There is also a "Cards" page which divides out individual credit, debit, gift and reward cards.

Google in its official blog post said that it is now working to bring the new Google Pay to all Google products, including Google Assistant and Chrome. The company has now started rolling out its new Pay app for Android devices.

The Google Pay App will have a Home Tab where clients will have the capacity to see all the data they require.

Google is working on a new Android P feature that will prevent background apps from accessing a user's both the camera and microphone without the knowledge. To line up with that transition, the Google Wallet app will become Google Pay Send so you won't be without functionality until everything settles in. Among the places that already support the app are public transit systems in Kiev, London, and Portland, Oregon, with more locations coming soon, they said. Until further notice, the Google Wallet application will be called Google Pay Send and will go under a similar marking. While we are still secretly rooting for Peppermint to be the official name, the great thing is that we've seen a lot of new features and details about the new Android version.

If you would like to check out GPay, you can download the app right now through the Play Store.

Of course, we should note that you might want to disable side-loading after you install Reply, as keeping this feature always enabled leaves your device opened to the installation of malware. For example, users in the U.S. or United Kingdom should be able to send and request money in the next few months.
