The new feature added in Google Pay will enable users to see which stores, providing essential goods, are open in the locality they are living in. This facility has been made available in 35 cities across India.
Google Pay informed about the introduction of new feature in a statement and said, "Nearby Stores, a Spot launched on Google Pay last month, helps users see which stores, providing essential goods, are open in their vicinity. Originally rolled in a few cities across India, this Spot is now available in 35 cities across the country. Additionally, merchant establishments can now indicate their business hours, whether social distancing measures are in place at the store and the essential goods presently in stock. Additionally, users in Mumbai can also see if the store is present in a containment zone."
