    I really want Google Pay to be available in as many countries as possible. The GPay app is only supported in the USA, India and Singapore.

  3. D. M. on October 29, 2022 at 6:08 am

  4. Joseph Bailey on October 29, 2022 at 6:09 am

    Apple Pay is so much simpler add a card and tap to pay no mumble jumbo

    Google Pay is such a massive clusterF. In typical Google fashion they’ve completely destroyed their payment "ecosystem" by launching, killing, launching, and relaunching multiple payment apps. 1st it was Google Wallet. Then they killed Google Wallet and replaced it with Google Pay. THEN they sunset the Google Pay app and replaced it with GPay, BUT THEY DIDN’T REMOVE the Google Pay app. So now you have two Google "payment" apps and everyone is confused. NOW Google is about to reintroduce Google Wallet YET AGAIN! And you can BET YOUR A$$ that Google will keep BOTH Google Pay & GPay apps around. So along side Google Wallet, you’ll now two other totally separate payment apps. THIS IS GOOGLE.

    Can’t believe US is lagging behind India in Cashless payment system

  9. Christophe Muller on October 29, 2022 at 6:13 am

    In Europe Everyone uses contactless payment card

  10. Ernie Manning on October 29, 2022 at 6:13 am

    I used to use Google Pay alot but on the new Gpay app they started delaying that transaction time between moving the money out to your bank account and charging you extra to do it instantly. As it so happens all 3 of my family members that send money frequently to each other all use Zelle through our bank accounts and it happens instantly. Goodbye Gpay.

  11. mudd3rz on October 29, 2022 at 6:16 am

    I used to love the old Google pay..
    Send and receive money instantly to and from your bank account to anyone with a Gmail. They killed that for this

  12. Joe Robinnette Biden on October 29, 2022 at 6:17 am

    Its Google so it’s bad

  13. JEROME TAYLOR on October 29, 2022 at 6:18 am

    Thanks for the informative video…it answered some of the questions I had about Google Pay 👍🏾

  14. Paul Ho on October 29, 2022 at 6:18 am

    Crucially, people should understand the underlying NFC payment method. Most people, here in the US, will understand and recognize Apple Pay but only think iPhones work. NFC is the technology used by phones and now cards with the contactless payments logo. When most retailers were required to accept the liability for fraud and eventually upgraded their payment terminals to use chip readers, most terminals also simultaneously accepted NFC. So if you see the logo, or someone says Apple Pay accepted, Google Pay/Wallet will work.

    It’s terrible that this has never left America still not In the UK,

  16. Cthight on October 29, 2022 at 6:21 am

    So google also knows where do you spend your money on? These are some really valuable data to sell.

    Wavy Gpay not available in Australia

    Google pay not available in Nigeria 🥲

  19. lovelyangel_90 on October 29, 2022 at 6:23 am

    I’ve been using Google pay for a while and it’s worked well for me. No issues at all. I love it. No more taking out my cards everywhere, but I never trust myself enough to leave them at home.

  20. Billy on October 29, 2022 at 6:25 am

    @4:09 ? You skipped over an important part very quickly. Do you unlock your phone and scan OR do you unlock your phone, open google pay then pay ?

  21. GreenAppelPie on October 29, 2022 at 6:26 am

    Reported for spam

  22. CarlosG on October 29, 2022 at 6:26 am

    We have Bkash in our country 🇧🇩
    That’s works same as Google pay.
    But only in Bangladesh 🙂
    But we don’t need to have a credit or debit card that’s the plus point

  23. Dawn Jay Varjabedian on October 29, 2022 at 6:27 am

    Can Google pay be used if I travel to Canada? Do I still need to notify my bank/cc company?

  24. Amir Moradi on October 29, 2022 at 6:28 am

    I love putting all my gift cards on google pay. That way I dont need to carrry them around and it helps you use them up because you’ll always have them with you if a situation arises to use it

  25. S3rs3 se on October 29, 2022 at 6:30 am

    GPay UK does not offer most of the options 🙁

  26. yodaflyz on October 29, 2022 at 6:32 am

    Thanks, I quit PayPal because of there new misinformation policy that there trying to walk back now that everyone is quitting. I was thinking this might be my best alternative to buy/sell on eBay.

  27. butterchicken on October 29, 2022 at 6:32 am

    This looks ridiculous without UPI lmao.

  28. Jon on October 29, 2022 at 6:34 am

    It’s crazy that whenever I want to use Google pay at a Starbucks, I have to say Apple pay in order for them to know what I’m talking about…

  29. CityLife in Arizona on October 29, 2022 at 6:35 am

    Apple, take note! This kind of bank information is what I’ve been wanting from Apple Pay!

  30. Tech Nerd on October 29, 2022 at 6:35 am

    I found this video educational. I always resisted phone payment options, although I have had PayPal since 2001. My Pixel 6 Pro supports it so I’ll give it a go.

  31. Tony on October 29, 2022 at 6:36 am

  34. Dan Bruno on October 29, 2022 at 6:40 am

    In the future you will STILL need to bring physical card with you OR leave in car for emergencys if you run out of battery lol

  35. MarcoPolo & Ruth on October 29, 2022 at 6:41 am

    Google pay does not work for payments on an iPhone.

  36. Gokul Balu on October 29, 2022 at 6:41 am

    Gpay rules India. My 60 yr old grandmother uses it extensively while grocery shopping and she didn’t even know how to do search few months back

  37. Dandy Dan on October 29, 2022 at 6:43 am

    You say that it’s a great option to carrying your credit cards around. So what happens if you want to make a purchase, let’s say gas because you’re on empty and the merchant doesn’t accept google pay? Sounds like the shoe leather express. I think google pay is a more secure way of making payments but I would still carry my credit cards just in case…

  38. David Jamgochian on October 29, 2022 at 6:48 am

    Nice to checkout

  39. Matthew Datcher on October 29, 2022 at 6:50 am

    1:23 Too bad that when I try to use the GPay app (with the wavy logo), I get the error message "Enterprise accounts are not supported on Google Pay. Please sign in with a personal account." I guess it’s the old Google Pay app for me until this is fixed.

  40. Dan S on October 29, 2022 at 6:50 am

    Ugh… CNET… why the butt ugly redesign of your logo? That is just plain awful.

  41. Kumar Sivadas on October 29, 2022 at 6:54 am

    India, U.S & Singapore : 😝

  42. Gabriel George on October 29, 2022 at 6:55 am

    Google pay charges fees form your personal bank? if you have an individual account and use a debit card.

    Please can you talk about samsung pay

  49. Vinay Prakash on October 29, 2022 at 7:04 am

    So basically, Google wants to expand what it’s doing in India. But there is one problem. In India, UPI is used to send money instead of cards, which is very convenient, faster and cheaper. And also, these transactions are app agnostic. Meaning, you can use one of the many UPI supporting apps to send to other app as along as you have their UPI address (just like emails).
