  • Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

This includes both Google Assistant and Google Chrome. This app is now matching the same design as Google Pay, which is good news. It contains all details of payments made in the recent past along with nearby stores where users can make payments using the Google Pay app. The app doesn't actually reveal your information at the time of payment, rather transmitting it through a secure and encrypted data packet. Cyber security researchers explained that the new Android will focus on apps' User IDs, which each app creates when it is installed.

If you look at the Google Pay app right now, you will notice it is very similar to Android Pay except the design changed. When the new app is available, your existing version will update itself automatically, carrying forward all stored credit/debit card and other financial information. You can download the Google Reply beta apk from here and test it yourself; Google might soon release the Early Access app to the people.

Google Reply takes the suggested responses from Gmail (pictured here) and places them into notifications.

Two-and-a-half years after it launched its Android Pay system for mobile purchases, Google is revamping its digital payments platform to make it "simpler, safer, and more consistent" for users. Tap the button, set up a payment method if you need to, and the transaction should proceed smoothly.
