Hinting a truth at this speculation, a reporter from the news source tweeted the application report by Google in the Controller General of Patents and Trademarks. The fact that the search giant has trademarks for Tez in Indonesia and the Philippines, the speculated ball game may include international expansions of the project.


India is a booming hub of technology and entails a huge scope of development in innovation and web industry. Flipkart, WhatsApp and Truecaller have already dived into this opportunity pool with Google keeping its stride in sync with them. The latest attempt marked its success as the search giant launched its Next Billion Users(NBU) program including free WiFi at railway/ bus stations, YouTube Go- an offline video sharing option, Android One, and Android Go operating systems for mediocre priced devices.


Considering India’s humongous population of 1.3 billion, the largest and fastest growing user interface of smartphone subscriptions, the digital payment is expected to soar up to $500 billion per year by the year 2020, as reported by a study conducted by BCG Google.  The upcoming advances will surely affect the overall growth of the county changing bigger scenarios than simply the digital age.
