It’s been a long time since we are using Paytm as our first choice when it comes to digital payment services. But now, other companies are also understanding the potential of digital wallet cum digital payment services. Mobikwik is also there. Hike already launched and Whatsapp is likely to launch their built-in wallet service. Samsung also launched the Samsung Pay. Amazon launched Amazon Pay balance. And now, seeing the big scope in digital payment service in India, Google, the search giant also decided to launch its own payment service called “Google Tez” in India. Here I am sharing how you can download the app, cashback offers, benefits etc.
The report came from a well-reputed news portal The Ken. A press conference will be held on 18th September 2017 in New Delhi where Caesar Sengupta, the vice president, Next Billion Users, Google will announce about Google Tez payment service. Just after the demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes in India, digital payment providers noticed a spike in their usage. Even a large number of shopkeepers and retailers were accepting Paytm as their payment method. And on the other hand, Indian Government also pushing users towards digital payment to stop circulating black money and giving bribe.

What Is Google Tez?
Google Tez is a new payment service like Paytm which is offered by the search engine giant Google. It will integrate with Unified Payments Interface (UPI) which is developed and owned by Indian government’s National Payments Corporation of India (NCPI) for mobile transactions. It is very similar to other digital wallets such as Paytm, Mobikwik, PhonePe, Amazon Pay, Samsung Pay available in India right now. So, this is ultimately a UPI app with some of the other features which are not available in any other digital wallet now.
Download Google Tez App For Android, Windows & iOS
Google Tez will be available in multiple forms. Google will make an Android app named Google Tez which will be available on Google Play Store and the iOS version of the app will be available in App Store for iPhone users.
But this is not the end. Laptop and desktop users can also access it by using its official website. Google Tez will also be available as a Google Chrome widget which can be used over Chrome browsers on computers.
As Android is owned by Google, we may also see the Google Tez app pre-installed in the future versions or updates of Android operating system. So this will help Google to reach more users within a very short span of time.
Googe Tez Cashback Offers
After the launch, the new payment app may provide cashback offers, signup up bonus, refer and earn program etc in order to promote their app. We will share all the Google Tez offer in this article, so stay tuned with us.
Digital payment services are growing at rocket speed in India. But as of now, the 57% market share is covered by Alibaba backed company Paytm which is owned by Vijay Shekhar Sharma. And seeing this market segment other companies like Hike, Mobikwik, FreeCharge, Oxigen, Citrus Pay, PhonePe, PayU, ItzCash and Ola Money started their operation. Even Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Jio has also launched its own digital wallet called Jio Money. Some international players like Truecaller and Uber also entered in the competition. Even Truebalance also started providing users with a digital wallet. Hence, Google has a large customer base all over the country, it is also trying to grab a slice of the growing digital wallet pie of India. Here, one thing I would like to mention that, earlier Google launched Google Wallet and Android Pay in other countries.
