Once you hit browse plans, you will see all the prepaid plans you can recharge your number with. You can then proceed to select a plan of your choice from here. You can browse between various full-talktime and 2G/3G/4G recharge offers that your service provider supports. After choosing a mobile recharge plan, users will also see a list of all valid offers that they can make use of. People using the service can make use of various providers like FreeCharge, MobiKwik, Google Pay and PayTM. These are the only supported payment providers for now.

Once the transaction is completed, a ‘Back to Google’ button will redirect people back to their search results. Note that the feature hasn’t been rolled out to all Android users yet but is expected to come soon. Moreover, Google is also expected to add support for more payment wallets and telecom networks later on.
