Google Pay @Spatnz

Google Pay

Google is shutting down Gpay, or GooglePay as you would call it by its full name, now as of now, this is just in the US, but I am sure this is going to keep happening because Google loves to close stuff down.

There’s a website called Killed by Google where you can see every single service or app that Google has killed off, (including Google Pay), in the last whatever amount of time, and it’s well over the hundreds.

They really do just kill everything they make, and the craziest part about Google Pay being killed is the fact that it was fully redesigned in 2020.

Just 4 Years

They fully redesigned this application and then killed it in a little over 4 years, it sucks that Google has become like this because if they release anything at all there’s no point in even getting excited about it because the likelihood of it existing in a couple of years is basically zero.

How to setup Google Pay? You missed that!

Like anything that’s not massive for Google, like YouTube, Gmail or Google Docs just seems to be canned almost immediately, now in the case of Google-Pay, it’s not being shut down entirely without replacement, they want you to use Google Wallet.

I would say that this is just a rebranding of Google-Pay, but it’s not, because you’re losing features, the main point of this redesign seems to just be to cut out peer-to-peer transactions, so like if you wanted to send your friend money you could have with Google-Pay up until like right now.

You can’t do that any more, and I don’t really get why, unless they had issues with scammers or fraudulent transactions.

A lot I don’t really get why this is something Apple does, they have Apple cash, you can just text people money, it’s really convenient, and it’s super nice, but this is all pretty stupid.

Google Wallet

Why were Google Wallet and Google-Pay not the same thing to begin with, isn’t that kind of dumb, like if I’m going to pay somebody, I’m going to use my wallet, and you have these two separate applications?

GooglePay should have just been integrated in Google Wallet from the start, and they’re kind of doing that now, but they should have just merged them from the start when they made Google Wallet.

What Happened To Google Music?

They also probably should have done it in a way that killed off a bunch of functionality, I think the reason Google killing off all this stuff bothers me is because I used to use Google Music back when I was in high school and Google Music was pretty good, but then they shut it down.

So I had to switch to something else, and it really irritated me, so now whenever Google shuts something down, I look at it and think wow, I could have been using it and that would have really peed me off.

And it’s not like Google’s killing off stuff that no one is using, there’s hundreds of thousands of people that use everything that Google kills off.

Some of this stuff has to make money, they just kill it because who knows why, this company has like trillions of dollars, and they can’t manage to keep anything alive.

Two years ago, Google also announced the Plex Google-Pay card and this thing had 400,000 people waiting for it to come out, and you know what Google does, they cancel it.

They cancel it and never sees a light of day, it dies a cold lonely death alone in the dark, to never be seen by the world again because Google doesn’t want you to have anything.

What do you think, let me know in the comments down below. How to set up google pay? This is not about that!
