— Facebook is testing UPI on WhatsApp for around a million users in India. Users on the beta can invite as many people as they like, but the service isn’t readily available to everyone yet. WhatsApp is ironing out regulatory kinks before rolling out the service to everyone.
— WhatsApp has 200 million monthly active users in India and is the most widely used messaging app in the world. The second largest messaging app in the world, Messenger, is also owned by Facebook.
— Indian telcos are introducing Chat, a Google-developed standard, to compete with WhatsApp. Messages on Chat are not end-to-end encrypted and are sent over data, as opposed to SMS.
— WhatsApp recently rolled out a feature to clearly identify forwarded messages.
