Step 2: click on “New” options under ‘Payments’

Step 3: You will now see a list of contacts who already are signed up for the app. Scroll down to the end of this list to find “Invite your friends” option.

Google Tez Payment app review

Google’s Tez app has a smart and intuitive interface. However, it’s simply not very Tez (or fast). Google has provided with a nice set of features, but you can also find these in other UPI apps like PhonePe as well.

Since Google is at the software helms, earning consumer trust shouldn’t be a problem. You can also add your own PIN for additional security while setting up the app.

One unique feature of the App is Cash Payment mode which you can use to Pay or to accept Payment with nearby devices without revealing or sharing your phone number or any other detail. However, It took us 5 to 6 attempts before we could successfully pay money using this particular payment mode.

You can still try it now and avail promotional offers and cash-backs, and we do expect that app to run a lot better after the first few updates.
