He said that there is a new way to try the digital wallet. He added that a limited number of people would be able to send and receive money on WhatsApp through Novi in the US. This would make sending money to friends and family as simple as sending a message.

For Android users, they need to tap on the attach icon available on the dialogue box, whereas iPhone users will need to tap on the plus icon in the chatbox. Then the users will be required to select the payment option. Lastly, on selecting the payment option, users will be prompted with the option to enter the amount they wish to send.
