Google Pay users are in for a surprise. And yes, this new tool will act as a reality check for some users who fail to keep track of their transactions. The new section, which is a 2020 Rewind by the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) app will show how much money has been used by users on app in 2020. Google Pay has been giving insights to users into their spending habits of 2020.
The new section, 2020 Rewind is currently on display on the Google Pay app on Android and iOS as a banner. This rewind section gives insights into the number of days you have spent on the app. Also, it will show the badges a user has managed to earn as well as spend categories and total rewards for the year.
It is easy to access the Rewind 2020 button. Users will need to only open the Google Pay app > tap on the rewind button on the banner displayed at the top of the Google Pay app. It reads “Check out your 2020 summary.”

The app will show your activity, if you have interacted with local merchants, and the number of transactions you have made. Also, it will give information on how much money users have saved over the year via cashback.
