Google is supercharging its Tez payment service in India ahead of global expansion

Google launched its Tez payment app in India a year ago, and now the company is giving the service a major push into retail as it prepares to expand it to other parts of Asia and beyond. The app itself is being rebranded to Google Pay -- bringing it in line with Google's global payment service, which is available in 20 countries -- but there are more tangible updates on their way. Most notably, Google is plotting to turn Tez Google Pay into an all-encompassing payment app for India.
