Google Pay now supports peer-to-peer payments and mobile tickets

The EU may force Google to make significant changes to Android

Google Pay now has a new "Send" tab that features a "Send or request money" carousel with your contacts.

This is just one more step in Google's quest for a single useful payment app. You may recall that when the switch to Google Pay happened, Google kept this feature as a separate app called Google Pay Send.

First off, Google Pay now stores your boarding passes and event tickets, alongside your cards.

That new punishment would come after another record fine against Google a year ago from the European Union, when it hit the company with a $2.7 billion judgement for anti-competitively ranking its comparison-shopping service over similar offerings from rivals in search results.

The 'dual-screen' Ticwatch Pro costs $250
It enables lower power consumption as the tech allows the watch owner to switch between FSTN LCD display and an OLED display . As for the rest of the story, the TicWatch Pro has all of the specs you could ask for in a Wear OS device at this time.

One last change in this update is a new Activity feed accessible from the navigation drawer that replaces the shortcut to open or install Google Pay Send. Google announced boarding pass support at Google I/O 2018, and the feature has been in public testing for a few months, but now it appears to be entering wider availability.

The crux of Vestager's argument is the fact that device manufacturers are faced with "an anti-competitive choice" - either Chrome and Google Search need be default tools on the device or they will not be able to use the Google Play Store, something Android users need to download apps and games.

Feel free to use the service with your other loyalty cards or gift cards for more rewards. Google's blog post says you'll be able to save passes from Ticketmaster and Southwest with "more places soon, including Eventbrite, Singapore Airlines, and Vueling". Especially with airline tickets, this dedicated view makes it easier to quickly pull up a boarding document.

Google Pay is now in third place in the mobile payment race behind Starbucks and Apple Pay and just ahead of Samsung Pay, according to eMarketer. Log in to your Google account to see all transactions and history.
