Google Pay team reportedly in major upheaval after botched app (Flutter) revamp

  • One former employee estimated that half the people working on the business-development team for Google Pay—a group of about 40 people—have left the company in recent months.
  • Users on the new app couldn’t send money to users on the old app, so as your contact list slowly switched over, Google Pay just became an unusable mess for the next few months.
  • Something probably needed to change for Google Pay, but these are stats for NFC payments, and New Google Pay changed basically nothing about NFC payments.
