Google's Tez app will soon be able to process bill payments”

In the coming weeks, Tez will start rolling out a customized service enabling users to pay bills directly from the app. That's impressive, considering that it's one of the newest apps to support India's Unified Payments Interface, which is a system devised by the government to allow for inter-bank transactions. It noted that Tez has processed 140 million transactions since its launch in September, and that it accounted for 73 percent of UPI-based transactions in the country last month.

The company also said that from now on, Google's Tez app will facilitate payments to merchants as well.

Citing NPCI data, Sengupta said that in October-November period, Tez accounted for 70 per cent of transactions on BHIM UPI. Sengupta also revealed that there are 5.25 lakh merchants already on Tez.

Tech giant Google said on Tuesday that its payments app Tez has acquired 12 million active users in just 10 weeks since its launch in India and that it will start offering bill payments.

Small businesses are also using Tez to pay suppliers, and transfer money to employees. Google also revealed the initial partners such as Airtel, DishTV, Tata Power, ACT Fibernet, Docomo, and several utility providers.

Sengupta announced that 70 billers will be live on the app when the service goes live covering national and state electricity providers, gas, water, and more.

Google announced that Android Oreo (Go edition), aimed to better performance of entr-level smartphones, will enter the market in early 2018.

In a bid to ease user experience in low-end smartphones, Google has come up with Google Go which cosumes less than 5MB download space.It helps users translate their search queries with the "tap-first" feature, while the user also gets to switch the answers to preferred languages. In 2015, Google CEO Sundar Pichai hosted the event and announced free Wi-Fi at 100 railway stations, faster internet search, YouTube pause to buffer, among other relevent things.
