Google Pay Send will no longer be available in the UK after September 6th.

Engadget has reached out to Google to find out if this change will affect any other region and will update this story if we hear back.

While the feature will continue working for the time being, Google is asking users to transfer outstanding balances to their bank account before the feature is discontinued.

Google's decision to kill off peer-to-peer payments comes after the company folded a standalone Google Pay Send app into its flagship Google Pay app last year.
