Google Pay is a popular application for Android and iOS smartphones. It uses the UPI (Unified Payment Interface) technology to enable digital payments in India and even other countries that accepted the UPI.

Earlier this mobile payment application was known as Android Pay. However, later to give it a global banding rather than just limited to a particular smartphone OS Google renamed it.
