Whatsapp Digital Payment in India

WhatsApp has recently started testing the digital payments feature. Now a limited number of users in India can try its built-in payments feature. Based on the screenshots shared by UI designer Nagender Rao Savanth‏, testers will have to verify their phone number via SMS to be able to use the government-backed Unified Payments Interface within the app. They can then choose among the pretty large list of banks available, including the State Bank of India, HDFC Bank, and ICICI Bank, and others.

WhatsApp’s payments feature will debut in the country, and it wasn’t hard to believe even without a confirmation from Facebook. Today India has the largest number of WhatsApp users, which is about 200 million people every dayFacebook and WhatsApp will definitely announce the feature when it goes live for everyone. When it does, it’ll be competing against other digital wallets in the country, such as Google Tez, which allows people to make payments without having to share their info.

11 WhatsApp Features You Might Not Know

unblock WhatsApp Nigeria

Today WhatsApp is probable the most usable messenger in the world. If you are one of its fan, you need to know these helpful WhatsApp features.

1. Text formatting in messageswhatsapp-font-formatting.jpg

When you type messages in WhatsApp you can use bold, italic or striked text on the fly. To do so, you’ll need to add a couple of special characters before and after whatever it is you want to format.

To bold text in WhatsApp, use an asterisk (*bold*); italicize text with an underscore (_italicize_); create strikethrough text with tildes (~strikethrough~).

2. Star a message


You can add a star to some message. This is convenient way to go back to a phone number, address or article link a friend sent you. For this you need long-press on the message and tap on the Star icon.

To view your starred messages, on iOS select the Star tab along the bottom of your screen. Android users need to tap on the Menu button, then Starred Messages.

3. Who do you talk to the most?

Curious about who your BFF is on WhatsApp? If you have an iPhone, it’s easy to figure out.

Go to Settings > Data and Storage Use > Storage Use. A list of contacts will populate, in order of who is using the most storage on your phone. Tap on each contact to view more detailed stats, such as the number of messages exchanged, images and GIFs.

Android users can go to Settings > Chat > Chat History > Email Chat to view the same info. Thanks to CNET reader CherryC22 for the tip.

4. Review message details


Want to see message details? if it was delivered or read? Swipe to the left on a message you sent to view those stats on your iPhone. Android users can long-press on a message, then tap on the “info” icon at the top of your screen.

5. Mute a conversation

When heading into a movie or meeting, use WhatsApp’s mute feature to silence a chatty group conversation or a friend who doesn’t get the hint that you’re busy.

Android users can long-press on a chat, then tap on the crossed-out speaker icon at the top of the screen. iPhone users need to open a conversation, then tap on the contact or group’s name at the top of the screen followed by Mute.

WhatsApp provides the option to mute a chat from 8 hours to 1 year, which seems a bit like overkill.

6. Hide your last seen status

If you want to hide your “Last Seen” time, you need to do the next:

Open Settings > Account > Privacy > Last Seen.

WhatsApp provides three options: Everyone, My contacts, Nobody.

7. Disable read receipts

Now you also can disable read receipts in WhatsApp. This will prevent fellow users from knowing you have read a message.

Open Settings > Account > Privacy and uncheck the box next to Read Receipts.

Note: Turning this feature off will also prevent you from seeing when a friend has read your message. Group Chats will still use read receipts, however.

8. Don’t save photos, videos by default

If you’d rather not have WhatsApp saving every photo and video you receive to your camera roll, taking up space and cluttering up your own photos, disable autosave.

On an iPhone, open Settings > Chats and turn Save Incoming Media Off.

This is a feature that’s seemingly missing from Android.

9. Use WhatsApp on a computer

As we’ve covered before, you can use WhatsApp from a computer with relative ease.

The gist of the process involves selecting WhatsApp Web within the mobile app, visiting web.whatsapp.com on your computer, and scanning a QR code with your phone.

10. Custom notifications

Android users should tap on the Menu icon when viewing a chat thread, followed by View Contact > Custom Notifications.

For those using WhatsApp on an iPhone, tap on the contact’s name when viewing a chat thread, then Custom Notifications.

11. Export a conversation

On an iPhone, the process involves viewing a chat thread, tapping on a contact at the top of the screen, then scrolling to the bottom of the Contact Info page and selecting Export Chat.

Both devices give you the option to export with or without media attached.

Skype, WhatsApp, and other messaging apps in Saudi Arabia Available Again

whatsapp saudi

Skype, WhatsApp, Snapchat, and similar voice calling services should be unblocked in Saudi Arabia again. According to a statement from Saudi Arabia’s telecommunications authority

Any voice and video apps that meet the rules will be allowed.

Leap Ventures partner Hala Fadel wrote last year that it was a prime time for Middle East nations to start investing in digital startups:

“With 70% of the population under age 30, the Arabs are a hyper social and hyper digital population.”

Saudi Arabia’s information ministry seems to agree with Fadel, saying that a digital transformation will boost the nation’s economy.

“Digital transformation is one of the key kick-starters for the Saudi economy, as it will incentivize the growth of internet-based businesses, especially in the media and entertainment industries,”

the ministry said in a statement today.

As Skype, WhatsApp, and others voip applications are available in KSA again, the country’s three domestic telecoms operators — Saudi Telecom Co, Etihad Etisalat, and Zain Saudi — will face more competition and lose their current oligopoly on calling services. But tight regulations over the internet still continue, with restrictions on access to extremist, pornographic, or gambling-related websites.
