Google Tej, one of the most accepted realtime Payment Apps in the country has undergone rebranding and the new named assigned is Google Pay aka G Pay. The app is revamped in terms of features and the updates were announced at the ‘Google for India 2018’ event being held in New Delhi today. Best part of the improvisation will be the Instant Loan facility for which Google will tie up with the leading banks in India.
However, the users will still be able to see the previous User Interface and hence user experience will remain the same. To make things more clear, the Tez App users will be able to see the equal homescreen, contacts, bill payment links etc. Besides, Google has announced that it will make the users capable to pay more online using the In-Store and On-line payment options.
Apart, best part of this new App will be the pre-approved loan facility. Now the Google Pay users will be able to apply from pre-approved loans from all major banks i.e. ederal Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, and Kotak Mahindra Bank etc . Here we would like to convey that Tej App at this moment is being used by 1.2 million small businesses across the country and the company is palling to hit 1.5 lakh retail stores by Diwali.
“Building apps in India implies that Google would be building for a global audience. The statement suggests that Google Pay worldwide will be based on the app’s India model,” said Mr. Caesar Sengupta, VP Product Management, Google India commenting on the upgrade of the Google Tej App. So it’s of course nice to see that Google is planning to replicate the same model of Tej app across the Globe.
As Google claims almost 70 million transactions have been made since last the app was introduced in September last year. Undoubtedly, it’s a too helpful app as we get payment in fraction of seconds using the Tej App. Now we will wait to watch the further usabilities of the app in the Indian market.
