WhatsApp has again come with the newest update. The WhatsApp users in India can now add payments background at the time of transferring money from the app. This feature is exclusively announced for Indian users only. The company says that this feature will help people of India in conveying a feeling along with sending money.
WhatsApp’s payments background feature is very much similar to Google Pay’s payments background feature. In Gpay, users are free to add different backgrounds from the option given by the company while sending money. Now, WhatsApp users can enjoy the same things on WhatsApp. Notably, the Facebook messaging app had first rolled out the payments feature in India in partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI). Now, the payment system enables transactions with more than 227 banks.
Manesh Mahatme, Director of WhatsApp Payments said, “WhatsApp is a safe space where people share their thoughts and feelings with their friends and family. We look forward to creating more features and functionalities and continue making payments on WhatsApp an interesting and interactive experience.”
