However, even though with the new RBI guidelines which have asked digital wallets to be inter-operable won't make them last much either way.
Message recalls have been rumored on WhatsApp for months now and every couple of weeks, we got a glimpse of the functionality in a beta version but it was always a false alert and never properly worked.
While some users have been able to use the feature for several days, the rollout has proven slow and many others have been left wondering why they haven't been able to access it.
WhatsApp app has received a new update for Windows Phone devices. The report also notes that WhatsApp has reportedly partnered with three of India's leading banks- SBI, ICICI and HDFC to launch the feature. So if at WhatsApp is working on this payment feature - there's no doubt that it is going to be a big threat for other players in the Indian digital payments ecosystem. And now the instant messaging service is about to bring a revolution in India (as well in the world) as that's where its maximum user base of 200 million is. It allows users to delete specific messages which they have sent to either a group or an individual chat.
WhatsApp Pay will be added in the "+" option next to the camera, photos, document, location and contacts in the chat option.
As per the source, a person will have to tap on a new Rupee symbol to send or request money.
I've tested this with Artem who's running the latest beta as well, and even though he can't delete messages for everyone just yet, deletion worked on his end as a recipient. Unfortunately, users will not be notified if the deletion was unsuccessful for everyone. There will be an option to accept or reject the request as well.
This is in line with the previous rumours that WhatsApp plans to use UPI, backed by the government and also integrated by Ola, to enable payments between users. Ultimately once this feature launched mobile wallet companies will have something to be anxious about. However, the Facebook-owned messaging application hasn't revealed any details about this feature as of yet.
