The new Google Pay app allows you to pay, see past transactions and find offers and loyalty info. Fascinatingly, it can also help you dutch dinner, rent or other expenses with more than one person. Google Pay will even help you do the math on who owes what.
Google Pay will also help you save money by looking out for offers from brands like Burger King, Target, Etsy etc. You can activate them with a tap, and they'll be automatically applied when you pay in store or online.
The new Google Pay app is now available in the Play Store for US users only. International rollout will come later.
