WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned instant messaging service, has reportedly started testing its long rumoured payment feature in India. According to reports, some WhatsApp beta users on iOS and Android can now see UPI (Unified payments interface) integration in the app.
The feature is said to be available on app version 2.18.21 on iOS and 2.18.41 or later on Android. This hints at the official rollout of the feature in near future. India is the first country where WhatsApp is enabling its payment feature.
