How to send money to any UPI ID via WhatsApp payments feature

How to send money to any UPI ID via WhatsApp payments feature
WhatsApp introduced its payments service in India last month. The feature is still in pilot stage but already a number of users have activated it on their smartphones. WhatsApp’s payment feature is based on the government-backed Unified Payment Interface (UPI) platform and competes with the likes of Paytm and other digital wallet platforms. WhatsApp earlier this week made some changes to the payment interface, also the first update since its roll out.

WhatsApp now makes it easier for users to send money via UPI to your friends and people not in your contact list. The update includes sending money to UPI ID directly. Earlier you could send money only to contacts in your WhatsApp only. This essentially means you don’t need to save someone’s number in your contacts list to get started with WhatsApp payments.

How to send money to any UPI ID via WhatsApp
You can always send money to a contact by tapping on the “Payment” option found under the attach file menu. Following this you will have to choose which UPI-enabled banks you have your account registered in.

UPI service is enabled in almost all popular and major banks in India like HDFC bank, ICICI Bank, and State Bank of India. After this you need to select the bank account registered with your WhatsApp number and confirm it.
To send money to any UPI ID, go to your WhatsApp’s settings and choose Payments (if the feature has been activated for you). The updated interface shows a history of all the previous WhatsApp payments followed by your linked UPI account. You can also add multiple UPI accounts with WhatsApp. Tap on the next option “Send payment”.

On top you will notice an option “@ Send to UPI ID.” Tapping this option will show a pop-up prompting you to enter your UPI ID. Enter your friends or anyone’s UPI ID and hit confirm to complete the transaction. Note that you’ll have to enter your UPI PIN for a successful transaction.

As said earlier, WhatsApp’s payment service is still in beta mode and a full-fledged roll-out is expected in April. The interface may undergo more changes while WhatsApp may add more new features before the final roll out.

Does Amazon's New FireTV Stick 4K Do It All

HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos... Yup!
It seems like every year a new format comes along to make all our "old" gear obsolete. For audio video afficionados, those latest formats include Dolby Atmos immersive sound, and three different flavors of High Dynamic Range for enhanced picture quality. The three HDR flavors currently on the market include HDR 10 (the most common), HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision and HDR10+ promise better picture quality than standard HDR 10 by using something called "dynamic meta data." Basically they're able to shift around the required storage bits on a scene-by-scene basis to get the best dynamic range out of movies and TV shows that are encoded in the format.

Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse Best-Value Activity Tracker Review

You will not find an activity tracker that offers better value than Xiaomi's Mi Band Pulse. We put the upgraded Mi Band to the test in our Xiaomi Mi Band 1S review.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse?
With a tougher band addressing our issues with the original, and a new heart-rate sensor bringing it into line with rival activity trackers, you quite simply won't find a better-value fitness band than the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse. It still falls down on social interaction, apps and its use of a proprietary charging cable, but given the price we can accept these shortcomings.

2019 BMW M5 Review

The 2019 BMW M5 sedan is a high-performance luxury car without compromise and few rivals.
The 2019 BMW M5 high-performance sedan gives us all of the feels.
The digital wizardry from the last generation is still there, but this year’s version integrates the human into the experience. It’s a better feeling super sedan on a super budget. For 2019, BMW added an M5 Competition version that bumps power output to 617 horsepower (up from 600 hp in the M5), bigger wheels and a handful of small performance tweaks. The M5 Competition starts at a rich $110,000, give or take, up from the M5’s asking price of more than $103,000.
