Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 7 seconds

Google, on Tuesday, has rolled out a prepaid mobile recharge facility in Google search in India. Prepaid Mobile subscribers in India will be able to browse plans and recharge from Google search. For now, this feature is available only for signed-in users in Android. Supported telecom operators are Airtel, Vodafone-Idea, Jio, and BSNL prepaid.

To trigger the mobile recharge facility in Google search, users must type a keyword that is related to recharge, for example, ‘prepaid mobile recharge,’ ‘Airtel recharge,’ or ‘prepaid recharge’. Google search results will show a mobile recharge option, users need to fill phone number, and select operator, and circle.

After filling all the details, tap on the ‘Browse Plans’ button. Google will show all the available prepaid plans for that phone number. After tapping on the preferred plan, users will be presented with various checkout options along with offers. For now, Mobikwik, Paytm, FreeCharge, and Google Pay checkout options are available.

Tapping on any one of the payment options will redirect to the respective app for making the payment. Once the transaction is completed, the confirmation page includes a ‘Back to Google’ button that directs the user back to search.

This feature is not available for iPhone users yet, and there is no word about availability either. However, we can expect the feature to arrive on iOS soon.
