As the fight against the spread of Covid-19 continues in India, Google Pay added a couple of new options on the merchandise to form lives easier for users, as they observe social distancing. 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 during 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 situ at the shop and therefore the essential goods presently available. Additionally, users in Mumbai also can see if the shop is present during a containment zone.
