Why the Name Change?
The name change from Google Pay to Google Wallet in Japan is part of a global rebranding effort by Google. The company is unifying its payment services under the Google Wallet brand, which it believes is a more recognizable and user-friendly name.
What Does the Name Change Mean for Users?
For users in Japan, the name change from Google Pay to Google Wallet will not affect the functionality of the app. Users will still be able to use the app to make payments at participating merchants and online retailers.
However, users will need to update their app to the latest version to see the new name and logo. The update is available now in the Google Play Store.
What Features Does Google Wallet Offer?
Google Wallet offers a range of features to users, including the ability to store credit and debit cards, loyalty cards, and gift cards. Users can also send and receive money from friends and family using the app.
In addition, Google Wallet offers a range of security features to keep users’ financial information safe, including 24/7 fraud monitoring and the ability to lock or disable a lost or stolen device remotely.
