The rebrand is coming a little late in the game.
Think of it more as a rebranding rather than a change to Google's underlying products or technology.
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". It arrived in Australia in 2016. Google Pay is aimed at becoming a unified platform which can be used for Play Store transactions, payment at NFC-enabled booths and miscellaneous online transactions (to pay for stuff purchased from the Google Store).
Google already employed a similar logo and name for "Pay with Google", its very similar-sounding online checkout service, which came out in October. It says that the new payment service is already available on Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, and other apps and website.
Google is moving to corral its various mobile wallet concepts under a new umbrella-Google Pay-but it won't be an overnight cure for the confusion many consumers and merchants are likely to experience as the new "G Pay" logo starts to appear. With Google Pay, the company ensures their Android users the easiest method of money sending, receiving, paying out with saved information on their Google accounts. "We can't wait to share more". After years of brainstorming - Google finally has had the genius idea of unifying both these platforms under a single brand.
