Indian regulators has given WhatsApp a thumbs up, allowing the Facebook-owned app to operate as a payment service in the country.
The National Payments Corporation of India gave the company the green light to operate via the Unified Payments Interface after two years of checking out its out application. WhatsApp has been operating pilot operations in India through that time.

You can find it in the latest version of WhatsApp.
