It never made much sense for the universal Android-supporting mobile payment app to coexist with the slowly dying Google Wallet, and at long last, Mountain View seems to agree.

Alphabet Inc.is consolidating its various payment brands under one name: Google Pay. That being the case, if Google already has your payment info, you'll be able to purchase goods and services with a simple click, similar to the Apple Pay feature on the iPhone.

You'll also start seeing the G Pay logo on contactless POS systems in physical retail stores, where you can authenticate payments just using your smartphone and its built-in NFC chip. Bhat said Google Pay will be coming to more sites and services in the coming weeks. This is Google, so don't try and understand the odd decisions they often make or you'll ruin your day.

Back in November, Google launched a promotion within Android Pay - now Google Pay - to coincide with the release of DC's Justice League. Apart from Google Pay, the company also had the UPI-based payment service called Tez. Google announced that it's consolidating all platforms under the Google Pay banner.

It's already available on Airbnb, Dice, HungryHouse, Instacart, Fandango and other apps and websites.

The companies are offering $5 off movie ticket orders to anyone using Google Pay on the Fandango Android app and entering the promo code "GooglePay2018".
