For now, the feature is only available for testers and is expected to become official by the end of this month. Considering the large user base of the messaging app in India, the payments platform's integration may give another boost to digital payments.

We've reached out to WhatsApp to see if it can shine a light on how exactly WhatsApp Payments works and if it is considering bringing it to other countries following its impending launch in India, and will update this piece when we hear back.

This indicates the final stage of inclusion of WhatsApp payments system on the Android app will be soon launched. Additionally, you will have to create a UPI account (if you don't have one previously) through the UPI app or your respective bank's website/ app.

Some users who have downloaded the beta version is getting the above options on their WhatsApp. This will allow users to post stickers suiting their moods instead of only emojis.
