Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management for Payments at Google, announced on Monday that the search giant is bringing together all of the different ways to pay with Google into a single brand known as Google Pay.

Google said Google Pay is already available for several popular online services, including Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse and Instacart.
