WhatsApp Announcement When Will Give Users Change Number

The most popular instant messaging app, WhatsApp, is known to soon have new features. This feature allows users to send messages to friends in contact when changing phone numbers. The notification feature to replace this mobile number is still in the testing phase. Give it a try, users need to download WhatsApp for Android Beta version 2.18.97.

IOS beta users can not test it yet. This feature makes it easy for users to migrate information from an old account to a new account, be it a group, an account, or other information. Then users can also choose who to send notifications to. Can on all contacts, chat contacts you only, or only to specific persons as you want. Using this feature is very easy. As mentioned earlier, the first user must upgrade the Android WhatsApp beta to version 2.18.97.

When it has been updated, the user can select the WhatsApp settings menu in the upper right corner and press the Account menu. Then enter the old and new telephone numbers and choose Continue. Users are confronted with the option to which a notification about the WhatsApp number is sent. After pressing the Done button, the notification will be sent automatically.

WhatsApp can shop online?

WhatsApp can shop online?

WhatsApp reports that it has prepared a payment function that will be integrated into its instant messaging app. That is, instant messaging applications are used to broadcast money or second-rate shopping.

WhatsApp itself has not definitively disclosed the release date of the payment function or its global availability. But surely this feature is true.

Now the payment function is referred to as WhatsApp Payment and is already included in the WhatsApp beta version 2.17.295 update.

Based on the screenshot of WhatsApp Beta in circulation, it seems that WhatsApp Payment is an interbank transfer service made with Unified Payments Interface.

The screenshot also shows that the user must agree to the special terms of WhatsApp Payment, Bank and Data Protection to use it to send money.

Temporary suspicion, WhatsApp prepares the payment function released on the Indian market. In addition, it was some time ago ubiquitous that the Facebook business has recruited a number of local financial application experts.

WhatsApp itself is reluctant to comment on the future of the payment claims it develops to make a claim but that India is a country that is valued as important and the company is working to reflect the vision of India Digital.
