Google Tez, the digital payment app for Indian users have received a major update since its launch, back in September 2017. The company has added the facility of paying utility bills for the users via the app without any transaction charges. This means Google Tez users will be able to pay various utility bills to almost 80 private and public service providers ( DTH, Reliance Energy, BSES etc.).

The app is based on Unified Payment Interface (UPI) that enables the users for instant money transaction across different banks. Now, with the update, Google’s Tez Payment service offers the facility of paying bills to various utility providers in the country. “We’ve designed bill payments to be the most convenient way to manage life’s expenses, so you can pay right from your bank account in just a few taps. We can’t wait for you to try it out and see how much time you save”, Google wrote in a blog.

With the help of new payment feature, the users can easily pay bills without any additional charges. Users can see a bill paying feature that is available under ‘New Payment’ tab in the updated app version. Once the users start using the Google Tez as their bill payment medium the app will provide additional assistance. This includes sending a notification whenever a new bill arrives, fetching the bill details, and also showing the previously paid bills. The app shows the biller’s name on the home screen and just by tapping on it the user’s can check whether the bill is paid or not. Along with this feature the app also supports the multiple accounts for making payments.

Google Tez requires users to locate their billers first and enter the associated account number to link the account to the app. Once the account is linked to the ‘Tez’, the app will automatically fetch most of the user’s bills and notify them on time.

However, Google Tez isn't the only one to launch bill payment service in India recently. WhatsApp, the messaging app with 200 million users in India has also launched its peer-to-peer payment service in beta version. In December, Google reported that the ‘Tez’ app has successfully acquired 12 million users within the three months of its launch. There is no doubt that Google Tez is much simpler and efficient payment option for the users in India as it is based on UPI, yet it has WhatsApp coming as a strong competitor.
