The digital payments app PhonePe has introduced a new chat feature for its users to enable conversation on the platform.
Through this feature, it’s limiting the use of other messaging apps to request money or confirm the receipt of the transaction.
The conversation history will also enable keeping track of transactions.
Rahul Chari, the Co-founder and CTO of PhonePe said in a statement, “In the coming weeks we will enhance the chat with features like group chat which will likely make the platform to request or collect money from friends and family”.
The chat feature was launched a week ago for Android and iOS, has been rolled out to over 185 million users according to the company.
