Google Now endeavours to make sure you pay your bills on time

Google is currently in the process of quietly rolling out an update for its official Search application via the Play Store. Once updated, users will receive reminders when their bills are due, how much they need to pay, and, finally, how much they owe altogether.

No configuration is necessary in order to register for this service. Google has the facility to generate its bill payment reminder cards by scanning through emails in a user’s Gmail inbox and picking out relevant information. It then condenses this data and displays it in a card, which is housed in the Search application, otherwise known as Google Now.

Compatibility is fairly restricted for this new feature, but it’s thought that support for additional services will be added in the not-too-distant future. Amongst the few supported payment processors are American Express, Bank of America, MasterCard and Visa.
