Card nicknames are making a return in Google Pay after the search giant removed the has several years ago.

This is a particularly handy option for those of use with several cards in Google Pay, as usually the app only shows the company name and the last four digits of the card number.

You can then type a name with up to 25 characters. When you’re happy with the name, tap save. You’ll see the name upcoming to your card in the Payment screen.
