WhatsApp is the world’s most popular encrypted messaging service, which is constantly adding new features. According to the new Beta updates, a “payment chat shortcut” feature is currently rolling out on the WhatsApp beta versions. In order to ensure further security for users, WhatsApp is adding a payment chat shortcut option. This feature is currently in beta testing and was first spotted/leaked by popular platform WABetaInfo on its blog.
WABetaInfo announce that WhatsApp is going to introduce a new shortcut to quickly send payments. Well in the past, you have to open the chat action sheet in order to send payments, but now WhatsApp is placing a dedicated button on the chat bar.
This payment chat shortcut button for WhatsApp is currently available for Indian users. Users that have already installed the recent versions of WhatsApp beta e.g., Android 2.21.17.
People from other countries might get the same button for their currency, but there is no evidence right now. The button is still under the development on WhatsApp for iOS. It will be soon available in a future update.
