Gerardo Capiel Product Management Director, Consumer Payments, Google said: “We’re combining the Google Pay and Google Pay Send apps. Now, you can send or request money right from the Google Pay app if you live in the U.S. (and soon in the UK). And if you picked up the tab using Google Pay, it’s even easier to split the bill. Just tap on a recent purchase and instantly request money from up to five people.”

Everything is synced with your Google Account, so if you update your payment info on the web, it’ll be reflected on your phone.
