google now billsEarlier this year it was noted that there was a possibility of Google Now being able to remind you when to pay your bills. The feature appeared to be in testing at that time and it was rolled out to what seemed like a very limited group of people. Well now according to the folks at Android Police, it looks like the rollout is now reaching a much wider audience.

For those who missed out on our earlier report, the bill reminder feature will work based on the bills that you receive via your email. If you’re still receiving paper bills then we guess this feature probably won’t work. What it does is that it identifies emails in your Gmail account as bills, and will be able to create a card in Google Now with the biller’s name, amount, due date, and so on.

For now it doesn’t seem like users will be able to pay their bills directly via Google Now, and at the moment it just seems like a pretty basic function which reminds users how much to pay and when they should pay it by. However as noted by Android Police, the earlier APK revealed features like minimum payment, previous balances, and more, which does not appear to be part of this incarnation of Google Now.

Perhaps down the line Google will start to roll out the additional features, but for now if you need help remembering when and how much to pay, this should do the trick. If you have noticed the feature on your Android phone, do let us know in the comments below!
