Google adds chat feature to Tez mobile payments app


Google has introduced at least eight different messaging platforms in the past decade, six of them active at the moment, excluding the chat feature that was added to YouTube.

Google has integrated a chat option in the Google Tez application and is slowly rolling it out to its 13.5 million active users, taking the competition directly to WhatsApp that is piloting its payment product in India. The app will then provide a user with a list of over 80 billers to choose and add your account info and start making payments instantly. Although the feature isn't available to all Google Tez users and is initially rolling out at a slow pace, it is only accessible if both parties are running the latest version of the Tez app on their mobile devices. "We've added a feature to Tez that allows you to send simple messages back and forth to your contacts about the payments you make", the spokesperson said in a statement emailed to Gadgets 360.

Ultimately, the move aims to strengthen Tez's offerings and make transactions via the app as easy and convenient as sending messages, added the spokesperson.

But with the advent of WhatsApp's in-app UPI payment service, Google faces stiff competition - the popular messaging platform now has over 200 million active users in India alone.

Paytm, India's leading mobile wallet service, has also bridged the messaging-payment gap, too. The platform is linked with the country's Unified Payments Interface and supports all major banks.
