- WhatsApp users in India will now be able to add payments background.
- The feature is available for both Android and iPhone users in the country.
- The feature looks like Google Pay’s payments background feature.
WhatsApp Pay which went live in India in November last year is being rolled out to more users with exciting features. The Company has announced that users in India can now add Payments Backgrounds while sending money to friends and family through the messaging app. This is similar to the feature available in Google Pay where users can choose from a range of backgrounds while transferring money.
WhatsApp has added a list of seven backgrounds from which you can choose the most relevant one when sending money to your loved ones. The feature includes a thematic range of artful expressions created by Whatsapp to complement sending payments on birthdays, holidays, or for gifts and travel.
Mahatme, director of WhatsApp Payments said:
“With Payments Backgrounds, our effort is to bring excitement to everyday payments through WhatsApp and enable our users to express themselves if they wish, through a range of emotive themes denoting celebrations, affection, warmth, or fun. We believe that sending and receiving money is so much more than just a transaction.”
“The core idea of this feature update is to create a more personalized experience for the sender as well as the receiver by adding an element of expression when friends and family exchange money. Whether it is friends splitting the bill after a meal, sending money to near and dear ones as a token of your love, or gifting your sister on the occasion of Rakshabandhan, payment backgrounds make sending money personal and bring alive the story behind every payment.”
