Google will soon let you pay and manage your bills with Tez

Google for India by the Numbers Hindi Voice Queries Growing 400 Percent Year on Year and More

The Silicon Valley firm's payment app Tez will also see updates as over 70 billers will be added, "including utilities and direct-to-home service providers", according to Google.

According to Google, Tez has handled 140 million transactions in its first ten weeks and has more than 525,000 businesses signed on to accept payments.

The impressive statistic is made all the more notable as it comes just three months after the service's initial launch.

Tez operates atop the Unified Payments Interface, developed by the National Payments Corporation of India. It's now well on the way to doubling that figure. At the event, VP of Product Management for the Next Billion Users program at Google, Caesar Sengupta said that the company's sole digital payments platform for the Indian market- Google Tez would surpass 12 million user mark in the next couple of days.

As Swift said to TIME , "You might be made to feel like you're overreacting, because society has made this stuff seem so casual". Mueller, however, still hasn't paid up, an "act of defiance" Swift believes "is symbolic in itself".

Google has also rolled out many new apps and schemes. Not only that but the average transaction today is now four times higher than during the app's launch period. The goal of Tez is to allow users to send money to friends and make payments to merchants, and it appears to have taken off quite well as Google recently announced that the service is about to cross 12 million users.

Google at its annual event in India, "Google for India" announced that its play store is among the nation's favourite. Google Go will be the default search engine for Android Oreo (Go Edition), acording to Shashidhar Thakur, Vice-President of Engineering.

There are more than 70 service providers throughout India that have already partnered with Google for this feature, and it'll enable folks in the country to manage payments for their phone service, electricity, heating, etc.

At the event, Sengupta said Google had some big plans for the Tez app for 2018 and that some big features for merchants were in the pipeline. Users will receive a notification when the feature hits their account.
