Google Pay — Google’s new unified payments service, which combines Google Wallet and Android Pay — is finally rolling out today with a new app for Android devices.

The app is sorted into two halves: a “Home” tab, which shows recent payment activity, nearby local offers and stores, and other information using Google’s card-style interface, and a “Cards” tab, which is where all your individual credit, debit, reward, and gift cards live.

Google has big plans for Google Pay, with the company promising that service will be making its way to all Google products, including Chrome and Assistant. And like Android Pay before it, you’ll be able to use cards and payment information stored in Google Pay across a wide variety of apps and websites when using an Android device or Chrome, too. Google Pay will also work for transit in cities including Kiev, London, and Portland, although that depends a lot on where you live and what your city’s public transit looks like. (Looking at you, MTA.)

Google is also working on integrating its Venmo-like service from Google Wallet directly into the Google Pay app for the US and UK markets. But for now, the company has rebranded the Google Wallet app as Google Pay Send and updated the design to match the rest of Google Pay.
