Google Pay vs Wallet: What’s the difference?

Google is particularly fond of renaming its services every few years, and nowhere is this more evident than in its payment strategy. Google folded its older Google Pay into GPay – a custom version built from scratch for India – but it didn’t roll out the service globally, instead confining it to a few markets.

This led to a lot of confusion as there were two different versions of Google Pay, and Google is now adding another product to the mix: Google Wallet. This new iteration of Google Wallet lets you pay with credit and debit cards and works with NFC payments, and you also get the ability to add digital IDs, transit cards, event tickets, car keys, vaccine cards, and much more.
