Simplifying our payment apps in the U.S.

For over a decade, we’ve helped people around the world make simple and secure digital payments powered by Google Pay — whether they’re making purchases online or in physical stores. Today, millions of people in over 180 countries use Google Pay to securely check out when shopping with their favorite retailers on desktop using ChromeOS, macOS and Windows PC, from Android and iOS apps, and in stores. Android users can easily save, find and use their Google Pay payments methods on the go with Google Wallet.

Google Wallet continues to be the primary place for people to securely store payment cards used for tap and pay in stores, alongside other digital items like transit cards, driver’s licenses, state IDs and more. To simplify the app experience, the U.S. version of the standalone Google Pay app will no longer be available for use starting June 4, 2024. You can continue to access the most popular features — tapping to pay in stores and managing payment methods — right from Google Wallet, which is used five times more than the Google Pay app in the U.S.

What you need to know about this change

We want to help make this transition as smooth as possible. Anywhere you normally use Google Pay — from checking out online to tapping and paying in stores — remains the same. And for the millions of people who use the Google Pay app in India and Singapore, nothing will change as we continue to build for the unique needs in those countries.

Here are a few updates U.S. Google Pay app users should know:

  • Manage your Google Pay balance from the Google Pay app until June 4: You can use the U.S. version of the Google Pay app until June 4, 2024 to view and transfer your Google Pay balance to your bank account. You can continue to view and transfer your funds to your bank account after June 4, 2024 from the Google Pay website. Learn more about transferring money out of Google Pay.
  • Find offers and deals on Google: We know finding the best deal is important when shopping, which is why we recently launched a new deals destination on Search.
  • Changes to peer-to-peer payments: As of June 4, 2024, you will no longer be able to send, request or receive money from others through the U.S. version of the Google Pay app.

We’ve invested in making payments as fast and seamless as possible — like improving Google Pay autofill in Chrome, making it easy to pay for public transit and expanding the types of passes you can store in Wallet. And looking ahead, we’ll continue improving payment experiences like these.

You can download the latest version of the Google Wallet app for Android on Google Play. You can also access and manage your cards on the Google Pay website. For more information about the changes we’re making, please visit this article.
