The transition from Android Pay, Google Wallet, and Pay with Google to Google Pay has not been very smooth or Google. Even Google Pay was restricted to Android devices until now. However, the company is slowly establishing itself – recently with web payments done either on desktop or on iOS.
Google Pay is coming to the web for desktop and iOS devices. This will enable online shoppers on supported sites to checkout regardless of the browser or device they are using. Shoppers using Chrome, Safari and Firefox will start seeing the Google Pay option and the saved cards can be used on the web from all platforms, even with another device, like an iPhone.
With this move, Google is slowly closing the gap with Apple Pay and creating a unified front for web payments, joining PayPal in the fight to make ecommerce payments easier.
