Google has made it easy to set up bill payments in Tez

Google Tez adds bill payments feature Here's how it works Google Tez Update: Utility Bill Payments Become Easy, Now Customers can Pay Bills on One Tap

Since it uses UPI, the new app will allow you to transfer money to other users at no cost. Now the app has gotten support to pay for bills from more than 80 organizations, including national/state electric, gas and water, and TV/internet services, with more to come soon. From there, Tez will fetch new bills and send timely notifications. It as well shows all of your past payments of the biller, and as well lets you manage bills from multiple accounts. If preferred you may also keep a custom name for the billing service. Clients need to simply tap on New Payment and then pay bills.

The latest integration covers bills of water, electricity, DTH and mobile from companies like Reliance Energy, BSES, and Dish TV. Once you've found your biller, you'll add your account number to link Tez and give the payment a name. "As we announced at Google for India in 2017, we are starting to roll out a customised experience for bill payments to Tez users to make this monthly task a much more convenient and pleasant experience", mentioned a Google spokesperson said in a statement. Take a look at the app, including its updated bill payment feature, in the video below.

After users have linked their account, for most utility bills Tez would automatically fetch any available bills.

For now, Tez's merchant base is spread across electricity boards, telecom operators and insurance companies, among others. By pressing and holding the Cash Mode buttons at the same time, two people using Tez are able to make a secure transaction in seconds without needing to share private details like phone numbers or account numbers. You'll see a list of billers supported on Tez across locations.

Google to encourage its users to use Tez, is offering a scratch card for Rs 1000 for every new utility biller being added by the user this month.

The Android or iOS app also provides a centralized view of bills, with past payments listed and the ability to manage charges from multiple accounts.
