India's Google Pay app recently received a makeover under the hood with Flutter, Google's cross-platform app framework. Looking at some screenshots posted by XDA's Mishaal Rahman on Twitter, it appears that Google will soon be deprecating the current Pay app that the rest of the world uses in favor of the now-Flutter-powered Google Pay India app.

Google Pay India rolls out tap-to-pay widely, more banks joining soon

Google Pay in India (formerly Tez) quickly rose in popularity to become almost synonymous with the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) — the very platform it’s based on. Last September, the company announced plans to expand beyond UPI payments to support tokenized cards, but nothing materialized even months after that initial teaser.

Google Pay just added 12 more US banks to its list of supported institutions

It's difficult to overstate the long-term effort Google's been making to get more and more financial institutions signed up to work with Google Pay. A couple years back we were talking about the day its list of US banks might hit a cool 2,000 — a milestone that's in the distant rear-view at this point. And while you might think it would simply run out of banks eventually, we're already creeping up on 3,000. Helping us along the way to get there, we've got nearly a dozen new banks joining the club.

Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, Cash app, and Google Pay compared: Which is the best money transfer service?

Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, Cash app, and Google Pay compared: Which is the best money transfer service?

Paying and getting paid is easier than ever, but the various apps you can choose to transact with have their upsides and downsides. Picking one can be difficult, and signing up for all of them even more so — especially when it often means convincing friends and family to do so as well. But old school bank ACH transfer tools are for the birds, and cold, hard cash remains a dicey proposition in the current environment. Splitting the bill with cash is also just a pain, and newer peer to peer (P2P) payment apps are so much more convenient that it's truly silly in 2020 not to be using one.
