Whatsapp is one of the leading messaging apps which is used worldwide by people of various countries. One of the best methods to send a message to somebody is by adding their contact numbers in the phonebook. Whatsapp has introduced a new payment method called UPI(Unified Payment Interface) which is being used by many different apps like Google Pay(previously known as TEZ), PhonePe, BHIM etc. But this feature is invite-only and not available to all the Whatsapp users. So today I will tell how to get Whatsapp UPI payment feature.

What is UPI?

UPI stands for Unified Payment Interface. It is a method to transfer money instantly from one bank account to another using UPI ID. You don’t need the account number, IFSC or any other details of the recipient. The UPI transfer happens instantly without any working day restriction. Also, it is totally free and there is no fee to make transfers using UPI. One just needs to choose the bank and enter the mobile number to add bank account to the UPI account of any app like Whatsapp, BHIM, Google Pay, PhonePe or PayTM.

How to get Whatsapp UPI Payment feature?

  1. Update Whatsapp to the latest version.
  2. Drop me a Whatsapp message here and I will activate the feature for you. People who already have the payment feature can activate this feature for others.
  3. One needs to open chat with the person who wants Whatsapp UPI payment feature. Then he/she needs to press the attach button and tap on “Payment” option. You will get a popup saying that the other person has not setup payment, you can ‘Notify them’.
  4. Once you press Notify, the other person will also start seeing the Payment feature inside the attach option.

 

How to setup Whatsapp UPI Payment?

  1. To setup go to ‘Settings’ in Whatsapp->Payment’.
  2. Press ‘Add new account’ option.
  3. Choose your Bank from the list.
  4. Then choose the SIM card(phone number) which is linked to your bank account.
  5. If the SIM card(phone number) was linked, it will send SMS and show you the bank details.
  6. Once done, the bank account will be added to the list.

How to send money with Whatsapp UPI payment feature?

  1. Just go to the person chat whom you want to send money through Whatsapp UPI payment feature.
  2. Tap the attach button, and choose the payment option.
  3. Enter the amount and a note in the field options. Make sure the bank account mentioned on the top is correct.

This is how you get Whatsapp UPI Payment feature. You can set it up to send payments to friends/family members instantly. It involves no charge and works even on holidays. I would say that this is one of the best features introduced by India to transfer money instantly.

How to read deleted Whatsapp messages

Whatsapp is one of the largest used messaging apps around the globe. They keep updating the app with new features which benefits the user in some or the other way. Recently Whatsapp introduced a feature where, if a user deletes a sent message within a particular time frame it gets deleted from the receiver end too. So if you have sent a message to your friend and you choose “delete for everyone” within that time frame, the message gets deleted from your friend’s device too. Your friend just sees the note saying “This message was deleted”. Now this feature is excellent for people who have sent some message by mistake. But if you want, you can still read deleted Whatsapp messages. People are very curious to know “why did the other person delete the message”. Don’t worry, we have got you covered with this trick.

How to read deleted Whatsapp messages?

Most of the people might have guessed that it has to do something with notifcations. Well you are correct as the notification stays until you swipe it and one can see the content of message in the notification panel. Well the problem is that notifcations get deleted once you swipe it or restart the device. So we need something to save the notifications and this can work only with Android.

  1. Go to playstore and download Notisave app. You can use other apps which saves notification history.
  2. Notisave categorizes the notifications based on the type of app. It groups the notifications of chat apps or shop apps. You can also create your own groups.
  3. This helps keep the notification panel clean and helps to manage them properly.
  4. After installing the app, you need to give notification access permissions to the app from settings. It will automatically take you to the section once you install the app. Just enable the options so that it has access to notifications.
  5. Now you can choose the apps whose notifications will be saved by Notisave. Other apps can be ignored to avoid unnecessary clutter.
  6. You can also have a passcode to check Notisave as it might contain sensitive information.
  7. Also deleting notifications is very easy with one click using notisave.

The notifications are saved even if you restart the device. You will need to go to options and delete the notifications if you want. Creating custom group might help to manage notifications in a proper manner. Photos and videos will not be saved using Notisave. Content above 100 words won’t be seen if you use Notisave. This has an added benefit of keeping notifications clutter free. Please make sure that you give permissions to access notifications to any 3rd party app on your own risk as it might save OTP and other important information from Bank. You can avoid saving such kind of notifications from the settings panel of Notisave. This was the trick to actually read deleted whatsapp messages without any problems. Even if you missed a message which got deleted, Notisave app will make sure to save it for you. If you have any doubts regarding this, please mention it in the comment section below.
