Google Pay finally allows names to be assigned to cards

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

For those who juggle around a lot of credit and debit cards, keeping track of them can be tedious. Google Pay, for instance, only showed the company name and the last four digits of the card — until now. Much to our (read: big boss Artem's) pleasure, Google Pay has finally added the ability to assign names to your cards.

Back in November, we noticed in a teardown that payment method nicknames seemed poised to make a return.

Samsung Pay can now open Favorite Cards automatically when you’re near an NFC terminal

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Samsung users tend to love Samsung Pay. And for good reason: the technology that powers the service allows users to pay for things with their phones even when NFC isn't available. A recent update is making it more convenient to use where NFC is available, though. Now, when your Samsung Pay-compatible phone is awake near an NFC terminal, your Favorite Cards will open automatically.

Favorite Cards are what they sound like: a selection of cards you've added to Samsung Pay that you've chosen to mark as favorites.

Migrating payment card info from Chrome to Google Pay might soon be possible

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

At the moment, it's possible to sync the payment cards you have in Google Pay with Chrome's autofill feature. This is incredibly handy for when you make purchases online, especially on sites that don't have Google Pay as a payment option. Unfortunately, it's not possible to sync your data the other way, from Chrome to Pay, but it looks like that functionality will be added in the near future.

According to a commit in the Chromium Gerrit, discovered by XDA Developers, an "intermediate bubble UI for local card migration flow" is being planned.

New Alexa skill lets you manage your Amazon Store Card by voice

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Tired of paying your Amazon Store Card bill by hand like a cave person? A new Alexa skill lets you manage your account—performing tasks like checking your balance, reviewing recent transactions, and paying your bill—by talking to your Echo device or app.

The Store Card skill will allow you to do pretty much anything with your card you'd otherwise do with traditional online account management. Amazon suggests trying the following phrases:

• "I want to pay my credit card bill."
• "Did my payment go through"
• "When is my payment due"
• "What is my minimum payment"
• "What did I recently buy"
• "What did I last buy"
• "How much money have I spent lately"
• "What is my recent activity"
• "What is my account summary"
• "How much available credit do I have"
• "What were my previous charges"
• "I need help”

 

Whether or not managing your account by voice is more convenient is subjective, but telling your digital assistant to pay a bill for you is at least novel.

Google Express now lets you add NFC-enabled cards with a tap

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

A new feature has cropped up in the Google Express app: the ability to tap NFC-enabled credit cards to phones to add them as payment methods. Doing so will automatically populate the card number and expiration date fields, but you’ll still have to add the security code manually.

During checkout, an NFC button now appears in the “add new card” menu. A cute little drawing in Google’s trademark colorful style explains the process, which is pretty straightforward.

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Google announced earlier today that it's taking the plunge with the Google Pay branding, meaning the Android Pay and Google Wallet names and branding are officially canned. To go along with the shift, a new version of the Android Pay...err, Google Pay app is rolling out with an updated look. It's going to take a little while to get used to that name. There are also some clues about what's to come, but we'll get to that in the teardown.
