Google Play Store has now added Unified Payments Interface (UPI) as a payment option for users in India, according to reports. Google Play Store in India currently supports credit cards, carrier billing via Airtel and Vodafone, debit cards, Google Play Balance, net banking, and Google Play Gift Cards through other ways like Google Rewards. With the new version of Google Play Store users have now find UPI as an option, XDA Developers reported it on Sunday. Unfortunately, we were not able to verify the existence of the UPI payment option, despite the desired version. Perhaps it is a server-side switch that Google has to flip for all users, and, the company has released a more recent version of Google Play – v16.4.15. Even with this version, we were unable to see the UPI payment option.
Best Payment Option
Since it was founded in 2016, UPI has now been accepted by most apps and services as one of the best-approved payment methods, Google Pay (formerly known as Google Tez). UPI has now 141 Indian banks onboard and users from those banks can reportedly use this mode to purchase apps from the Google Play Store. While using UPI, users do not need to share their card details directly with Google, and instead can make payments with their UPI IDs followed by a PIN to complete the transaction.
