Published

Over the past few months, WhatsApp has introduced the ability to transfer chat history from an iOS device to an Android device. However, that feature was unique to Samsung’s Android smartphones for a limited time. Now, this feature is being released on some Android smartphones.

Recently, Google announced that the recently launched Pixel 6 series and all existing Pixel phones support the migration history of WhatsApp chat from iPhone. Google says this feature will not be limited to Samsung and Pixel devices and will be available on all new phones introduced on Android 12. It is not yet clear whether the transfer tool will be available on upgraded devices from Android 11 to Android 12.

The transfer process involves connecting your iPhone and Android phone via a Lighting cable to USB-C. Google suggests users will be instructed to scan a QR code on their iPhone while setting up their new Android phone to forward to all WhatsApp conversations, media, and more.

Google claims to have worked closely with the WhatsApp team to make this happen. Data remains secure during transfer. The migration tool also ensures that you do not receive new messages on your old phone while the transfer is in progress.

WhatsApp may soon request ID verification to make payments

Published

on

WhatsApp will soon ask users to verify their identity in order to pay on the platform. Recently, new strings seen in the latest release of WhatsApp beta suggest that the messenger will require users to download confirmation documents in order to continue using payments on WhatsApp.

At present, when you set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number connected to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions. In Brazil, the messenger uses Facebook Pay to verify credit or debit cards for users to make payments easier. Currently, the app does not require users to submit any authentication documents to make payments.

The latest WhatsApp v2.21.22.6 beta (via-XDA) includes a few new strings that suggest that users may need to submit ID verification documents in order to continue using payments. While it is not sure why WhatsApp would require users to verify their identity in order to make payments.

WhatsApp may request ID verification in order to make payments:

Some UPI-based applications, such as Google Pay and PhonePe, do not require users to submit any transfer or refund documents. However, wallet applications such as PayTM request KYC verification in accordance with RBI guidelines. This leads us to believe that WhatsApp may be working for the WhatsApp Pay wallet, which will require users to submit ID documents.

WhatsApp is yet to issue an official announcement about this change. As new cables have recently entered the beta version, it may be some time before the company discloses any details.

WhatsApp ranks India among its major markets and often comes up with relevant local features to provide to millions of users there. The messaging service of the messaging app was tested in the country and made public publicly a long time ago, but the reception is not yet warm. To arouse the excitement surrounding the ongoing holiday season, WhatsApp is adding a total of five sticker packs with multiple cultural references around how Indians manage their money earned only by the defect.

The idea of ​​payments included in the messaging app used by everyone was promising and could establish WhatsApp in the payment platform. However, the Facebook messaging app hosted the party late. Google Pay and PhonePe already dominate India’s UPI market, leaving little space for newcomers, even smart ones like WhatsApp.

With these new stickers, WhatsApp is trying to entice Indian users with its payment service for utility charges linked to Indian culture, be it a shagun of lifafa or earning money from your relatives as aashirwaad when they visit you. In any case, these stickers should still be fun to use or not to use WhatsApp Pay.
