With the new feature from Google, it has now become easier to recharge prepaid mobiles here in India. You can recharge your prepaid SIM cards right from Google Search on your Android smartphone. The mobile operators that are in support of Google as of now include Airtel, Vodafone-Idea, Jio, and BSNL.
There are plenty of ways to recharge your phone’s prepaid plan and some of them are USSD codes, official apps, and bank clients. But Google thinks it can do better, and it’s now bringing another way to top up your plan in India.
The company has announced the ability to browse for and purchase prepaid phone plans via Google Search on Android.
To use the feature, you need to just perform a Google search query. It can be something like “Prepaid mobile recharge” or “SIM recharge”. In doing so, you will see a “Mobile Recharge” section in the search results where you get the option to enter your mobile number, operator, and circle.
When you are done with filling in all the details in the fields, you need to tap on Browse Plans button to view the available plans. Similar to dedicated mobile recharge applications, you will be shown the popular, full talk time, 4G/3G/2G data, special recharge, roaming, top-up, and recommended plans in their respective sections.
You can further choose and browse the options accordingly and get the recharge done.
