Google Pay is synonymous with online payments today. The app’s many benefits have made it a popular choice for online payment in every corner of the country. Officially, Google Pay is limited to one phone. You will be automatically logged out of the first phone if you attempt to use the app on another device with the same credentials.
Google Pay allows you to add multiple bank accounts to your app. However, this feature is not available if the mobile numbers that are linked to those accounts are different. In this case, you might be able to use two Google Play apps on one phone for payments.
