Google Pay will replace Android Pay and Google Wallet starting today

Google Pay replaces Android Pay

Earlier this year, Google announced that it would combine Android Pay and Google Wallet into a single service called Google Pay.

Starting on Thursday, Chrome started filtering ads that fail to meet a set of criteria laid out by the Coalition for Better Ads, an industry group. The organization is made up of Google and others, and it aims to improve people's experiences with online ads.
