What is Bill Split
Google Pay introduced ‘Groups’ on the payment application earlier this year. However, the functionality of that feature can finally be realized with the launch of Bill Split. For instance, a user goes to lunch with three friends and spends Rs 1000 on the food bill. If the user makes the payment via Google Pay and all four friends are part of a Group on Gpay app, the user can simply select the payment and split it into four.

Google has also announced the My Shop feature on Google Pay for merchants. The new feature allows merchants to set up a quick mini online store for its customers with essential information like rate card, store images and inventory. Google has claimed that this service will be launching in India very soon.
Google Pay Hinglish Compatibility
Google Pay has also introduced support for Hinglish on their payments app. As soon as the user enters the application, they will be prompted to switch to Hinglish as their preferred language. If the user selects the option, they will witness commands in Hinglish. Additionally, users will also be able to use voice commands while making bank transfers.
