Instead of having two different payment methods, Google decided it was time to combine both Android Pay and Google Wallet into one service.

Indeed, Google notes that Google Pay is not an inherently new product, but rather a "new name and look for existing Google payment products". That changed in 2015, when Google chose to spin off the tap-and-pay portion of the service into Android Pay. You might remember previous payment solutions Google has offered through the years such as Android Pay and Google Wallet. Then in 2015, Google came out with Android Pay, with support from three major USA carriers.

If you've ever paid for groceries with Android Pay, used Chrome to automatically fill in your payment info, or purchased an app on Google Play, then you've already experienced some of the ways Google helps you pay for things online and in stores.
