The COVID-19 pandemic has increased contactless payments, primarily through Bhim UPI, G-Pay, Phone Pe, etc. With a high subscriber base, WhatsApp also jumped into the fray to get NCPI approval to cater to 20 million users, which increased to 40 million in November 2021.

WhatsApp has repeatedly asked NCPI to accord permission to operate without a cap, but NCPI felt that allowing all users to access payment services could strain India’s financial infrastructure.

NCPI has now accorded regulatory approval to WhatsApp to offer Indian payments Services (IPS) to 100 million users. While this relaxation can provide relief to WhatsApp, it could still be a limiting factor as WhatsApp has at least 500 million Indian users.

Now, WhatsApp can directly compete with Google pay, PayTM, and Phone Pe in the Indian digital market. However, it also entails that WhatsApp should comply with Indian regulations and data storage norms that require data to be stored locally. Today, online transactions, e-wallet services, and lending activities have increased manifold in India. It engineers a shift of India’s cash-loving customers and merchants towards adopting digital payment methods.

Google is testing new security features, including theft detection lock, remote lock, and offline device lock, first available in Brazil. Users can sign up via a form to participate in the beta testing. The theft detection lock uses sensors and AI to identify and lock a phone if stolen, while the offline device lock cuts off internet access. The remote lock allows users to lock and wipe data remotely. These features aim to prevent unauthorized access, factory resets, and reselling of stolen devices. Google plans a broader rollout and is enhancing security with upcoming features like a private space for Android 15.

Samsung has teamed up with Paytm to integrate movie and travel ticket booking services into the Samsung Wallet app for Galaxy smartphone users in India. This collaboration enables users to buy and store tickets for events, movies, buses, and flights directly within the app, eliminating the need for additional apps. Samsung is also offering discounts of up to Rs 1,150 on first-time bookings and a referral scheme with Amazon gift vouchers. This new feature positions Samsung Wallet as a competitor to the recently launched Google Wallet app in India, which does not yet offer similar ticket booking capabilities.

Google's June 2024 Pixel Feature Drop includes a new Reverse Phone Number Lookup feature, allowing Pixel users to identify unknown callers directly from their call logs without needing third-party apps like Truecaller. This feature, compatible with Pixel 6 and later models with a Tensor chip, enhances convenience by eliminating the need to copy and paste numbers into search fields or separate apps. While the feature is currently exclusive to Pixel devices, Google has not disclosed any regional limitations or whether it will extend to other Android devices. For non-Pixel users, Truecaller remains a viable option.
