No Comments on Google’s Tez payments app will soon handle your utility bills

At its third annual Google for India event in New Delhi today, the company

noted that its Tez payments app is set to cross 12 million active users in

the country soon – and that it’s getting some hot new features to make

bill payment a breeze.


While Tez presently only lets you send and receive money between bank accounts, it’s set to receive an update that will let you connect to service providers – like your cooking gas company, electricity board, mobile carrier, and broadband company – to retrieve your billing history and pay off your pending bills with just a couple of taps.

Once you add a service and enter the details with which you signed up it, Tez will automatically pull in your previous bills, help you complete your payments, and even notify you of future bills when they come in.

That negates the need to manually track your own payments for various services, and also speeds up the process of completing transactions – you no longer need to look up and enter the exact amount you owe for your latest cable bill. To make this happen, Google has partnered with more than 70 major service providers nationwide in the aforementioned categories.
