'Tez' designed to make e-payments simple, secure: Google

Google launches digital payments service in India

Google launches digital payments service in India

You can find out more information about the new Google Tez mobile payments application at the link below. The number should be the same number which is synced with the bank account.

Google on Monday launched a digital payments app in India, which is based on the United Payments Interface. To attract users, Google has announced that by getting Tez Scratch Cards in the app, individuals will stand a chance to win up to Rs.1,000 for each eligible transaction.

To send money to another user, you then enter in their UPI ID, or select their phone number from your contacts list, if they're also using Tez.

The Google Tez app supports regional languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati, Bengali and Marathi.

"Key parts of TEZ:Made for India first, transact directly from a bank account, makes payment simple, built around your ease & super secure", Finance Ministry said. Google is also encouraging merchants to set up a business channel so they will be able to easily accept payments using Tez.

Google to end the scourge of auto-playing videos in Chrome 64
The v64 build of Chrome with the new policy will come to the beta channel in December and the stable channel in January of 2018. The site muting option is a handy means of avoiding audio on some sites, but keeping it in play on those you enjoy hearing from.

Google has not forgotten to secure the payments. Beyond that limit, the banks might start charging a fee. The app works as same as like the other Payment applications available in the market. The mode enables the users to instantly send and receive money to anyone nearby using Tez app without the need to share details like bank account or phone number.

The Google Tez application will be available on both Android and iOS platforms. Pay instantly and get quick payment confirmation all while keeping your personal and bank details private.

The app requires the Tez PIN or the smartphone lock to enable every transaction. This saves you from the hassle of remembering complicated bank numbers. Supported banks include Axis, HDFC Bank, ICICI and State Bank of India and other banks that support UPI.

Unlike popular Paytm, Tez is not a mobile wallet where one can store money and top it when needed. This app comes from Google at a time where Indian consumers are looking for a reliable digital payments app from a trusted brand.

As far as paying on websites and services with Tez is concerned, we should see more of these services integrate Google's digital payments service going forward.
