A PayPal Gmail, YouTube integration is now available, allowing account holders to buy stuff and send money to friends across the Google ecosystem…
Android Pay users have enjoyed access to their PayPal accounts for about a year now. But, that’s as far as the partnership went between the search giant and the popular payment platform. That is, until now.
PayPal Gmail, YouTube Integration Rolls Out
PayPal states it’s been working hard to expand it presence to give its account holders more flexibility. This includes using it in mobile apps, online, or in-stores. Now, it’s expanding its partnership with Google to do more.
Soon, U.S. residents will see the PayPal option across all Google products. “When a user adds PayPal to their Google Play account, it will automatically enable their linked PayPal account and make it available as a payment option across popular Google services like Gmail, YouTube, Google Pay and Google Store, including where Google offers peer-to-peer payments, without the user needing to log in again.”
Since consumers rely on Google products for such a wide variety of services, this certainly makes certain experiences more convenient.
