Google Pay was initially launched on Android smartphones and now it is made available on desktop browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Apple iOS on any device.

As pointed out by The Next Web in a report, Google Pay is now working in 20 countries which in time should let Google catch up with Apple's payment solution, Apple Pay.

"If you save a card to Google Pay on your Pixelbook, you'll be able to use it on the web with another device", Gerardo Capiel, Product Management Director, Consumer Payments, Google, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday. "In March, Google Assistant received an upgrade with a Google Pay integration that enabled users in the United States to send and request money from their contacts directly using their voice".

Google Pay allows users to make transactions in ways that don't necessarily involve a device, such as carrying out PayPal-like purchases on websites.

Apple Pay is already available for users across browsers and mobile platform, giving it an edge, but considering Google's Android user base being much larger than Apple's, it would not be a surprise if we see Google Pay becoming more popular soon. The entry of Google Pay was at the right time when users were longing for an update on other payment options such as Google Wallet and Android Pay.Google Pay has "Buy with Google Play" button as a new feature update.
