This report comes from leaked documents that were reported by Re/code. According to them, Google Pony Express is a new service that could launch from the company by Q4 of this year that would take all of your bills and allow you to sort, split and pay them directly from your inbox. It adds:
Once a user is authenticated, he or she can start receiving bills or other mail in Gmail or the Inbox app (Google’s new email app). E-billing is not a new thing as pretty much all major financial, telecom and utility companies allow for paperless billing. But Google could play up the fact it can organize a Gmail user’s bills automatically in a special Pony Express folder.
The service will also allow users to send payments from Gmail, via a link to a bank account or a debit card. The documents show that payment of bills can also be shared with another Gmail user.
If this service goes live, it may have to compete with similar services such as the Snapcash feature in Snapchat and Square Cash.
