Yes, a new Beta WhatsApp app is released which is showing the Payments option under the attachments section. We have been hearing a lot about WhatsApp’s own Digital Payment option within the app, which is finally rolling out with its beta update and very soon with its stable update.
The payments feature in the WhatsApp Messenger will work through Unified Payments Interface much known as UPI. The service is currently showing out the list of banks which are linked with this service.

Of course this service requires you to have your own UPI account. If you don’t know about it, the system will let you create one instantly. All you have to do is enter proper account number, your debit card’s details and you will be sent an OTP number. You need to enter the OTP number and then you will be able to create a password for the transactions using UPI service.
