Google Now will Remind You Of When Your Bills Are Due Soon

March 29, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

One thing we hate to do every month is pay our bills. As much as we don’t want to pay Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile or AT&T, it has to be done. However, Google Now is about to make that a bit easier. Which Google Now has already made a ton of things a bit easier to do on our phones like check the weather, check stocks, check the score of the game and much more. Now it appears that soon Google Now will be able to remind you when your bill is due. This comes from the all to familiar, person familiar with the situation, that stated that there will be a new interface in Google Now to remind you of upcoming bills so you don’t fall behind.

Obviously Google is going to use their famous Google Now cards to show you the reminders, there will also be a “Pay Now” button so you can easily pay your bill straight from your phone. Now that’s pretty amazing. The above image, from Android Police, is a mock up of how the card would look inside Google Now. The mockup above shows American Express, which also shows the due date, the total due, and the minimum due. It also gives you the option to keep seeing reminders from American Express or to get rid of them. Now I’m only guessing here, but it appears that this is coming from Gmail. So when you get emailed your bill from Discover, American Express, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc., it will then show up in Google Now. It’ll be interesting to see how it’s actually getting the information, because I know I don’t always get an email telling me that my bill is ready for each bill I have every month.

However, this is a great feature that we should see rolling out to Google Now rather soon. How many of you are excited for this new feature? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
