UPI based Google Tez digital payments app launched in India

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley launched Google Tez App for Easy Digital Pay Monday in New Delhi.

Google has just recently launched a special mobile application, called as "Tez", for the objective of allowing its widely growing numbers of customers in India, to make payments and other transactions easily.

The app works with all major Indian banks and a vast majority of smartphones. Moreover, the app is available in multiple local languages including Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Kannada and Telegu.

Google's Unified Payments Interface (UPI)-based digital payment service called "Tez" is live today, September 18. The app is available for download through Google Play Store for Android as well as App Store for iOS platforms.

Google has launched Tez (which means "fast" in Hindi), a mobile payment app, in India. Meanwhile, here is a list of 10 things you should know about the new Google Tez app. You can also earn Tez Scratch Cards to win up to ₹1,000 with each transaction, ₹1 lakh every week with Lucky Sundays.

You can download the app from here.

The third over saw Gayle smash left-arm paceman Willey for two successive sixes - a pull followed by a straight drive. Earlier, West Indies made 176 for nine.

Google has joined the fleet of digital payments through launching its new app "Tez".

Enables users to transact with an existing bank account and no need to open a separate account. If one has his UPI ID, account number or phone number. Subscribers just have to make sure that they use the same phone number that is registered on the app and is linked with the bank account.

So far, Tez supports banks like HDFC Bank, ICICI, State Bank of India, Axis and more. Pay instantly and get quick payment confirmation all while keeping your personal and bank details private. It comes with enhanced Google's multi layered security and 24/7 protection feature. It transmits "audio" to identify a nearby device, showing the contact details of the user, and lets you pay or receive money instantly. Above that, banks might start charging fees.

Another very interesting feature that Google has embedded into this app is "Tez Cash Mode". Redbus, PVR Cinemas, Domino's Pizza, Dish TV, and Jet Airways are few online websites who are accepting payments through Tez.

This Tez may remind you of the split the bill option in PayPal or the Group Payments in Messenger.
