Google Pay users got money by mistake: Here’s what happened


Some Pixel phone users are reportedly getting money from Google with a notification saying they are getting money for “dogfooding the Google Pay remittance experience”.

As GSMArena reports, users on the /r/GooglePixel subreddit have reported receiving unexpected payments from Google, ranging from a few dollars to over $1,000.

Some lucky Pixel users have discovered cash in their Google Pay accounts.

“Dogfooding” refers to the practice of testing a new feature or service before making it available to the general public.

The report states that this suggests that Google may be inadvertently sending cash to “test” random users, rather than paying the staff performing the tests.

However, the tech giant informed the affected users that they will attempt to refund the payment, but if they are unable to do so, the money will remain with them.

Meanwhile, Google will reportedly launch its upcoming ‘Pixel Fold’ and ‘Pixel 7A’ smartphones in June this year.

According to a leaked retail listing seen by 9to5Google, the Pixel Fold is all set to launch in mid-June this year.

A new blue variant of Pixel 7a and Pixel Buds A-series is also expected to be released along with the foldable smartphone.

The retail listing also revealed that the Pixel Fold will be available in two colors – “Carbon” (black or a shade of grey) and “Porcelain” (white).
