For those unaware, Google Pay itself was announced back in January this year, and it started replacing Android Pay later in February.

Google Search feed will now display news from both English and Hindi language sources. Google promises its read-out service will be capable of reading billions of webpages in a smooth, natural sounding voice, even on 2G. "It's also helpful for multitasking, like following a recipe while cooking a meal, listening to articles while exercising, or catching up on news on your commute", Yossi Matias, VP, Engineering, and Simon Tokumine, Senior Product Manager, write in a Google blog post. We will soon be adding support for Marathi and continue to invest in bringing support for more Indian languages.

Google mentioned that the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is Samsung's first Android Go phone. It has added seven more Indian languages to it. "India loves the Google Assistant". The tech giant has also rebranded its ' Tez' as "Google Pay" as part of its efforts to take the digital payments app to more online and retail merchants across the country. "Users tap a call to action in the ad extension such as "Get a quote" or "Sign up", and then reach a customizable, Google-hosted form, prefilled with information shared by the users, with the option to edit to submit their inquiry", Spalding adds.

Tez - along with a slew of similar UPI-based services by India's financial institutions - resulted in a massive uptick in UPI transactions, with Google noting that monthly transactions have shot up to over 230 million in the last 12 months. During the event, Google also shared some interesting stats about Google Tez in India.

Sengupta said Google is also working on integrating payments to its other products like mail and messages, like in some other markets. Ever since its launch, it claims that over 22 million people and businesses have used Google Pay to make over 750 million transactions that are collectively worth over $30 billion annually. "Our partnership with RailTel is an example where millions of people are accessing the Internet from hundreds of railway stations in India". Meanwhile, Google also announced that Samsung is ready to launch its first Android Oreo (Go edition) smartphone in India, something the South Korean company unveiled last week. The company has partnered with local Andhra Pradesh State FiberNet Limited to reach nearly 10 million people.
