Google Pay, a merger between Android Pay and Google Wallet
Indeed, its former mobile payment service, namely Android Pay, has not really been launched in France, but the deal should change in the coming months, since Google has now decided to go to the assault of our country for propose a new mobile payment service.
This one will be called Google Pay and should land in France in April. The service is the result of the merger between Android Pay and Google Wallet, an application whose goal was simply to transfer money to a loved one or a bank.

A mobile payment service soon available in France
This all-in-one service offered by Google Pay will undoubtedly benefit from a powerful solution to revolutionize our behavior in terms of purchase. The device would see the day through a partnership since an agreement would have been found between a French bank (which we do not yet know which) and the firm of Mountain View. The timing seems to match, especially since the Google developer conference will take place this year from 8 to 10 May 2018.
Knowing that Google I / O is an opportunity to debate the changes and innovations of the moment, the opportunity seems to be found to advertise Google Pay. In addition, it seems quite likely that this online payment service is not only deployed in France, but also in other countries. One way, in short, to compete with Apple Pay, which was talked about on Valentine’s Day, after its launch with Société Générale.
