Google launches its fast and secure payment app in India, Google Tez

One should be aware of the fact that It is not a mobile wallet like PayTM where users can store money on the app. Google Tez allows users to make transactions through the phone by deducting payments from the linked bank account.

On the app's website Google states, "Send money home to your family, split a dinner bill with friends, or pay the neighbourhood chaiwala". With Tez, you can transfer money directly to your bank account.

Coming back the Tez application, Google has added support for various Indian regional languages such as English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Bengali, Gujarati, and Kannada.

Google has officially announced Tez, its latest UPI-enabled digital payment app in India.

Tez which is launching today on iOS and Android in the country will see Google linking up with several major banks in the country through Unified Payments Interface (UPI).

The app is also secured via a built-in tool called "Tez Shield". Every transaction requires a UPI PIN while the app itself requires screen lock or Google PIN. You can refer the app to as many people as you want although the maximum reward is limited to the Rs 9000. This includes the likes of Amazon, Flipkart and Uber which recently launched UPI payments through its app. Apple is also said to be working on a payments solution for India. The Google Tez app is the first digital payment app that has been launched by the company in India. The software links directly to bank accounts, so there's no hassle of topping up a virtual wallet or creating a new account.

With Tez one can transfer money to any UPI enabled bank account.

Here you have to enter your basic account details of your bank which you want to link here. Payment goes directly to their bank account.

Google's Tez will sync with the user's mobile number much like in the BHIM app. Tez provides security throughout the payment process from customer to business and back. The app works smartly and you can easily start using this service through your bank accounts. Google's new app supports nearly all Indian banks, like State Bank of India, ICICI, HDFC, Axis, and more. You don't need to hunt for coupon codes. "Tez for Business" lets merchants get their own business channel to also offer consumers different offers apart from making or receive payments.
