Google on Monday officially introduced its new mobile payments app Google Tez in India. From the last few days, there were reports that Google could launch a new mobile payments app in the country. The app is all about letting users connect their bank accounts and make online transactions possible at physical stores.
With the help of Google Tez, users can link up their bank accounts with Tez. Once users have done that, they can transfer money over UPI. Google has also ensured that users’ money remains securely stored in their digital wallet. With that in mind, Google Tez Sheild combines the company’s multi-layer security for secure transactions.
Furthermore, the app has something called Tez Cash Mode. It allows users send or receive payments nearby by eliminating the need to share personal details such as bank account or mobile number at the same time using audioQR technology. Some of the upcoming features of Google Tez include paying through debit and credit cards on Tez. Users can also set reminders for recurring bills like DTH.
