Google Collections start rolling out, replacing Saved pages

If there's ever one constant in life as an Android fan, it's that nothing is constant with Google. Last September, the company started rolling out My Saves (or Saved pages), a mish-mash of your saved images on Google Search, saved bookmarks while browsing search results in the Google app, and Maps lists. But just a few days ago, Cody discovered that changes were afoot with Saved pages, and now Google is starting to implement those and switch to "Collections."

Depending on whether or not you're part of the server-side test, if you go to your Saved pages either through the Google app or by navigating to google.com/save, you may see the more modern interface where the saved lists are now called "Collections" and laid out in a more compact way.

Google Pay v1.57 prepares support for airline boarding passes and event tickets, Suica and WAON payment cards, and more [APK Teardown]

It wasn't that long ago that Google Pay (and its previous names) was solely focused on making purchases in a store or paying on the spot to get onto subways...and sometimes sending money to friends. Google recently added support for one-time transit tickets on the Las Vegas Monorail and prepaid commuter cards with the TriMet in Portland, Oregon, but things are about to get a lot more interesting thanks to the latest update. We can expect to see support added for airport boarding passes and event tickets. There are several other big additions coming, too, so let's get straight into it.

The Google app just leapt up to version 8.0 late last night, but despite the shiny new version number, most things are looking about the same.
