For many people, walking up to the register or gas pump and seeing the logo for their favorite mobile payment option is common. However, in small towns, it's rare. While there are some hurdles and some resistance to changing over to an unfamiliar form of payment, but both the business and customers are missing out on some real benefits of solutions like Google Pay.
Unlike, Apple, who made a big deal about introducing digital IDs soon in its Wallet App, Google has been quiet about its developments. Experts say that the company has other priorities right now and likely is focusing on privacy, an area that Apple already succeeds in.
Starting next week, Google Pay users in India will be able to choose if they want their transaction history and activity within the app to be used by Google to provide them with a "more tailored experience."
As more and more places have begun accepting mobile payments, using your phone as your wallet has become more normal than ever. Google Pay is an excellent payment platform and it is even more useful to use when you can leave your phone in your pocket and just use your Wear OS watch to pay.
