In addition, Google said that Google Pay will be able to save concert tickets and boarding passes. Google Pay is looking to increase the convenience with support for peer-to-peer payments and mobile ticketing. "Lacking that portal, owners of Android smartphones or tablets can't easily download games or other apps - or services from Google's competitors - offered by third-party developers".

Earlier, the company merged the functionality of Android Pay and Google Wallet, and it continues improving its payment solution.

Not only can you send or request money, but Google has added a tab splitter where you can tap on a recent purchase and then "instantly request money from up to five people".

Now Google is putting its weight behind Google Pay.

Chelsea ace Hazard: Belgium players love working with Henry
France want to show Thierry Henry, one of their greatest players, that he picked the wrong side in the World Cup . Martinez wanted Henry to develop a winning mentality, and draw more out of Belgium's forwards.

The leap from the levy of this new fine and Google potentially having to retool the way it makes Android widely available is pretty easy to follow. You can now save tickets from services like Ticketmaster and Southwest Airlines, and other services like Singapore Airlines and Eventbrite will be supported in the near future.

Boarding passes and event tickets will provide real-time information and change if your flight is delayed or the opening act changes to a different band. Version 2.70 of Google Pay is rolling this afternoon with that new integration, along with a new Passes tab and Activity feed.

Budgeting your money is very important. The year started with us learning about Google's plan to rebrand all payment services into one and called it Google Play. You have the usual array of rent and utilities to pay. Plus, money these days is a little tighter ... For a while now, Google's mobile payments solutions have inexplicably been split across two apps.

Lastly, there's a web application where all your data is synced with your Google Account, so if you update your payment info on the web, it'll be reflected on your phone.
