Now, WhatsApp introduced a Payments Background feature for its users in India to offer a personalized experience for both the sender and recipient. This feature is available on both Android and iOS platforms.

Different backgrounds are available to be used for various occasions like birthdays and holidays, and special occasions. Users can select from the list as per the occasion.

WhatsApp says that it will create more such features in future also to provide an interactive experience to users.

The payment feature of WhatsApp supports more than 227 banks with a real-time payment system.
