Google to launch 'Tez' mobile wallet in India

The app, called Tez, will connect users' smartphones to their bank accounts via India's Unified Payments Interface (UPI), a platform already used by 55 of the country's top banks.

Google Tez is available on Android and iOS and it is a standalone payments app which is powered by UPI, a payments protocol launched by National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI).

The app also has language support for English, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu to enable greater usability.

For making payments, you can either pay someone using their UPI capable bank account through the Tez app, or use a UPI ID, scan a QR code or pay using a friend's phone number. A complete list of banks is provided on the Tez website. Through this, the users can trace the nearby agent to either make or receive the payments. The report claims that PhonePe has almost 45 percent of the market share in all UPI transactions across the country in August which includes BHIM and several banks who are making use of UPI like ICICI, Axis, Kotak Mahindra and more. Users don't need to do anything, just make transactions and the winnings will go straight to your bank account- that is, if you win! Once the SMS is sent, the app seamlessly detects the bank accounts linked with that mobile number (even more than one, if you have multiple accounts).

"This was deliberate. We wanted to make digital payments as simple as paying via cash", the executive said at an onstage event. Online payment partners include large food chains like Dominos, transport services like RedBus, and Jet Airways and more will be added... However, Tez is a payments app, where you link your bank account with the app and pay directly from the account.

Google Tez is available for download in India.

Google Tez differs from other popular payment apps in India, such as PayTM because it is not a mobile wallet. However, your bank might have its own set of restrictions, depending on various factors.

The US tech giant has revealed its India-only mobile app Tez, abandoning the branding of its Android Pay service that has seen success in other markets. Subsequently, the UPI payment will have its second layer of authentication, to prevent unauthorized access.
