First, open any WhatsApp chat window and check for Payments option in Settings. If you have that option, Great you can now access the Whatsapp Payment Feature. We are providing latest apk version link below for Android users
Let’s Get Started

- Now Open Bank Accounts and select the Add New Account Option
- Tap Accept and Continue
- Click on Verify Via SMS and follow the instructions on the screen (NOTE: Same as other UPI apps, You must have bank registered mobile number in your handset)
- Select Your Bank and after SMS sent you can see your account connected to your selected Bank just Tap on It
- If you have multiple accounts linked to the same number select the accounts you need one by one.
HOW TO MAKE PAYMENTS?
You will have to enable your UPI Account which is linked with your bank account number and that account number will be linked with your mobile number which must be on your mobile obviously. GUIDE is already posted above.
- After enabling UPI
- TAP on Attachement>Payment
- Enter the amount of money which you want to send and then write a note if you want ( eg. RENT ..)
And the money will be sent immediately
WHAT IS THE LIMIT OF A TRANSACTION?
At a time on WhatsApp, you can send maximum of 5000RS. You cannot send anything more than 5000 as of now. whereas when it comes to Google Tez it supports payments up to 99,999Rs. So that is the limitation of WhatsApp, Whatsapp may lift the transaction limit in future, But right now it 5000 as of February 2018. When Whatsapp increase the transaction we will update the same here.
HOW WILL BE THE MONEY TRANSFERRED?
Will it stay in my WhatsApp wallet or something like that?
Never. Because when it comes to UPI there is no wallet involved. If I am transferring money to my friend, Money will be transferred from my Bank Account to that person’s Bank Account. WhatsApp will not store any type of payments
HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE FOR THE MONEY TRANSFER TO TAKE PLACE?
It will take 5 to 10 Seconds only. UPI Payments are extremely fast as compared to NEFT Payments which can take few hours. UPI Payments is we Personally prefer and that is we are using
IS WHATSAPP UPI PAYMENTS IS SAFE?
When it comes to any UPI Transaction there is one UPI Pin that will be known only to you. So do not keep UPI Pin as your birthday,123456 or anything of that sort. Don’t choose easy pin at all. Do keep your UPI pin very safe do not message that to someone else. Anyways if someone wants to hack your UPI Payments Application they will need access to your device, sim card. Because a message will be sent from your device itself and UPI cannot be activated from a device does not have the same SIM Card which the Bank Account is linked. So UPI Payments is completely safe. Just make sure that you keep your UPI Pin something which is little bit awkward and very difficult.
WHAT IF MY BANK IS NOT LISTED?
When it comes to setting up UPI you have to select your bank. Nationalised Banks such as SBI, HDFC, ICICI all these banks are listed also many small banks are also listed over there but when it comes to some urban banks like Grameen bank they may not be listed on the UPI payments. Unfortunately, if the Bank is not listed, You Won’t be able to use the UPI feature in any Application. But Majority of good banks are present over there
If you still have any more doubts, issues, or queries regarding WhatsApp payments which I not mentioned in this article. Do let me know that in the comment section below I will try my best to answer your question

User Interface Changes
App Drawer Improvements
Now you can swipe up to open up the app drawer from anywhere on the screen, you are no longer required to initiate the swipe from the dock at the bottom of the screen.
Light UI: Notification Shade & Quick Toggles
The dark notification shade and quick toggles are now gone, Android Oreo introduces a Light UI for notification shade and quick toggles
If an app has anything new to show you, a long tap on the app icon on the home screen will bring up a menu, with last recent notification, important shortcuts along with app’s widgets and ‘app info’ on top. Enable it from settings – apps & notifications – notifications – allow notifications dots and then, enable for each apps’ notification settings in app info.
Using Notification Channels feature apps can now create different categories for notifications. Do note that apps need to enable this first. A long tap on the actual notification on notification drawer will bring up a special menu, by using which you’ll be able to control the priority and visibility of each type of notification posted by that app.
Taking a step further from Android N’s split screen feature, Oreo introduces Picture-in-Picture mode. Where once apps enable this, they can display the content over a floating window while performing other tasks, a useful addition to watching videos or for video calls. Currently, VLC and YouTube (needs YouTube Red) have this feature live.
Remember how Chrome pushes the stored information like credit card no, addresses, credentials etc. and fill up the relative information fields? Oreo introduces one such feature extending the same capability with Autofill Framework, allowing apps to create and maintain their own list of auto-fill data and then populate it when required.
You can change setting from the ‘Autofill service’ in Languages & input in settings. Currently, Google’s service is the only option until other apps start taking advantage of this feature. It already uses passwords saved using Smart Lock in Chrome.

Sooner or later, an inappropriate notification will ding when you don’t have time to deal with it. Oreo has a special feature to deal with it, Swipe right (not too much though) on the notification and then tap the icon (clock one) to snooze it. By default it will be snoozed for 1 hour, click on ‘time’ to change it.
Android Oreo introduces ‘Night Light’ mode which you can now activate it automatically based on customizable time and also change the intensity of it.
