WHATSAPP NEW FEATURE: NOW YOU CAN TRANSFER MONEY TO FRIENDS

Maybe you are not used to Instagram and snap chat or you have never used insta and snapchat filters but the one app which has proved is ubiquity that no one can live without in this time is none other than the most interesting and instant messaging app WhatsApp. WhatsApp has improved but now it's even getting better. Currently, people are waiting for the new feature of WhatsApp video calling to get launched. Reportedly, the upgrade will allow a user to add 3 more people to a video call. The feature is yet to be fully launched as it is getting tested. Known as the 'Beta Version', it is a version of a piece of software that is made available for testing, typically by a limited number of users outside the company that is developing it, before its general release. Prior to the launch of that feature, WhatsApp planned to add another feature by which people can even transfer money. By this step, WhatsApp will be able to compete with whole digital transaction sector. If the sources are to be believed, WhatsApp is currently testing its all-new digital payment transfer and receiving feature. This feature is based on the UPI platform and Whatsapp has joined hands with some popular brands for this facility.

The option is reportedly available along with other options such as a gallery, video, documents et al. When you click on payments, it will open a disclaimer window, followed by a list of banks to choose from. After this, you have to select the bank account to connect with UPI. You will be asked to create an authentication pin if you haven’t yet used the UPI payments platform. Additionally, you will have to create a UPI account through UPI app or your respective bank’s website or app. This is going to be a huge upgrade for Whatsapp. Let us know what you think in the comment box below.
