- Google Pay India (@GooglePayIndia) August 28, 2018It's certainly been a year to remember. The new feature, powered by natural language processing and speech synthesis AI, Google says, can read billions of webpages smoothly in "a natural sounding voice".

The Google Assistant arguably gets the biggest update. A year later, the company now chose to rebrand Google Tez as Google Pay. According to Google, the amount of online content in Indian languages is only 1 percent of what's available in English. The digital assistant will add as many as eight new Indian languages.

Google's Tez payments app is being renamed Google Pay, to bring it at par with its global counterpart without losing aspects that are specific to India.

Participating in this project will help publishers receive training and support, and a branded page domain for the first three years, Google said, adding that Navlekha has already opened up for publishers in New Delhi and in the coming month it would be ready to welcome more from other regions.




Google launched the Tez app in India a year ago and since then over 55 million people have downloaded the app and more than 22 million people and businesses actively use the app for digital transactions every month. There were also announcements related to Google Assistant, Google Search, Android Go, Google Go, Google Maps, Google Station, and more. Since its launch, over 750 million transactions were done by users using this app. "It supports 28 languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Malayalam, Marathi and Tamil-even on 2G connections", the company said in a blog post. "Search, to be truly helpful, it should bring you useful content in all the languages you understand", Shashidhar Thakur, VP, engineering, Google Search said.

Since launching in 2017, Google Go has accrued millions of users by offering a stripped-back browsing experience for those with limited internet speeds or device storage. Google has also entered into a tie-up with RedBus for Google Maps.

The company has partnered with four banks HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, ICICI Bank and Federal Bank and is also actively in talks with different banking partners for the same.

Recently, the company also added bill payments within the app. This will provide high-quality Internet access to potentially 10 million people. The company has partnered with local Andhra Pradesh State FiberNet Limited to reach nearly 10 million people.
