Now when you Google search for images, each image will have a caption in bold. The captions will be the titles of the web page where each image is published. Google said in a press release, “This extra piece of information gives you more context so you can easily find out what the image is about.”

Your recipient will also need to set up Google Pay to receive the funds.In January of this year, Google finally ended the Google Wallet / Android Pay confusion by merging them into the Google Pay system. Although, the confusion still exists: for the next few months, there will still be a separate “Google Pay Send” app for peer-to-peer payments.
