Users of the older Google Pay app in the United States will need to move to the new app to be able to make P2P transactions, according to Engadget.com.

The original version is set to lose the ability to access transactions and recent activities by April 5th.  As to the new app, it was released in November.

For now, the modification will only affect customers in the United States. This is because the new app has not been rolled out in other locations. As such, persons in other locations can continue using the old version.

The old app users will still access the digital wallet including remittance cards. The new Google app can only be used on one device at a time.

After 5th April, persons who will hold funds on their Google Pay account will only access them via the new app. However, the funds can be transferred to the user’s bank accounts with the help of Google’s support team.

The service terms for users in the US will be updated on 5th April. Google Pay’s minimum age account will be increased from 16 to 18 years.

We’ve reported that Google Cloud launched AI-based product search tools for retailers.
