Google's P2P payments app Tez now handles utility bills

Google Tez Adds Utility Bill Payment Feature

Customers of about 90 utility firms including power, telecom and DTH, can now pay their bills online using Google Tez applications, the company said today. Google has also included a feature that will help Tez users pay recurring bills like the ones for internet, water or even electricity bills.

For every new biller selected for payment this month, Google Tez will offer a scratch card inside the app with a value of up to Rs 1000. They can also manage bills from their multiple accounts. You can also search for the biller by name. "Users need to just tap on new payment and then pay your bills", the statement said. The app now supports 80 invoice mailing companies, including consumer service firms like Reliance Energy, BSES and DishTV. Once you've located your biller, enter the number associated with your account to link it to Tez and give it an easy name to remember.

Among the billers that Tez is supporting are the national and state providers of electricity, gas, water and DTH recharge. Now, pay the bill using your UPI ID. Take a look at the app, including its updated bill payment feature, in the video below. It lets users check whether they have paid a bill by simply tapping the biller's name on the app's home screen.

Google India on Monday announced that via its digital payments app, Tez, users can pay their bills within minutes, without any transaction charges.

After users have linked their account, for most utility bills Tez would automatically fetch any available bills. By pressing and holding the Cash Mode buttons at the same time, two people using Tez are able to make a secure transaction in seconds without needing to share private details like phone numbers or account numbers. Tapping on this will show a list of supported utility companies. Tez's entry into this category is expected to disrupt the space as higher incentives will see one set of users changing loyalties to gain additional discounts.

The feature works on the latest version of Google Tez app on Android (v8.0) or iOS (v8.0).
