This app from Google which was released back in September 2017, was targeted at Indian customers by linking your bank account with the help of UPI. Tez delivers you almost all the e-wallet features that you'll ever need.

With Tez, you can pay friends and families across India directly from your bank. From splitting your bill to online payment, Google Tez is perfect in making money transactions easy. With 24x7 protection shield from Tez, you don't need to worry about your security ever. Apart from that, Tez also allows its users to discover great offers while you do your regular transactions. Another mentionable feature about Tez is the timely reminder which you can set for your monthly bill payments. By turning this feature ON, you never have to worry about your bill becoming overdue. If you always struggle a lot in reloading your wallets every once in a while just like your mobile phone, worry no more, as Tez works with your existing bank account it won't ask you to reload your Tez balance since there is no wallet here to maintain balance in.
