Google Pay will let users residing in Singapore and India receive money from their friends and family members living in the United States of America. A new collaboration will take care of the arrival of this latest feature of the Google Pay money transfer service.
The search giant has integrated with Western Union and Wise, which was formerly known as TransferWise. In a statement on Tuesday, Google stated, “By the end of the year, we expect that U.S. Google Pay users will be able to send money to people in more than 200 countries and territories through Western Union and to more than 80 countries through Wise.”
If you are living in the U.S. and you want to transfer money to someone living in India, here’s how you can get started using Google Pay.
Step 1: Go to the Play Store and download the latest version of Google Pay if you do not have the updated app.
Step 2: Set up the Google Pay account by following the steps that require the user to add their bank account.
Step 3: Once you are done with the setup process, tap the ‘Pay’ button on the home screen. Now, choose between Western or Wise.
Step 4: Keep following the instructions to complete the payment procedure.
Google Pay U.S. users who will be transferring from Western Union will have free transfers until June 16, whereas users who will be choosing Wise to share the amount will be allowed one free transfer if only the amount is under $500.
The latest feature of Google Pay has been rolled out at an appropriate time, with the second wave of Covid-19 hitting various parts of India. Even the government authorities worldwide have been sending their medical help and other supplies to the country. With such technological assistance, Google has aided U.S. residents and NRIs who have been coordinating with different NGOs for collecting and transferring the funds to the nation.
