WhatsApp to Introduce International Payments Feature via UPI for Indian Users

With the help of the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) built into the program, Indian users of WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, may soon be able to send money abroad.

Soon, users with an Indian bank account will be able to complete transactions and send money to certain foreign merchants using the ‘International Payments’ feature. Only in nations where banks have approved international UPI services will this be operational, though. We can see that the international payment feature needs to be manually activated by examining the screen grab that the tipster gave. Users may be required to choose how long they want the function to be active.

As to the source, WhatsApp may take up to three months to complete a transaction, whereas Google Pay has a seven-day period. This feature is already offered by Google Pay and PhonePe, two other significant UPI operators in India. Neither WhatsApp nor any other app beta testers have verified the feature. It is recommended that readers interpret the information cautiously.

WhatsApp’s UPI-Based International Payments for Indian Users

The integration of this feature by WhatsApp is expected to facilitate international transactions for its users. In November 2020, WhatsApp began offering in-app UPI payments to subscribers in India. The ability to make foreign payments is currently in development and could soon be available to a select group of beta testers. Not all users have access to it just yet, and more information regarding its introduction should be revealed closer to the day of release.

Spotify has been touting its lossless music benefits for a long time, and individuals are still holding up to see it made official. It appears that day is not as distant absent presently, at least going by the most recent bits of gossip.

The company seems to include an unused Music Master membership that will offer the much-awaited lossless sound quality along with other highlights. Be that as it may, the music professional is impossible to come by cheap; in reality, individuals will be made to pay more than what the stage charges for its normal premium version.

The Music Master arrangement from Spotify is likely to offer superior sound quality than what Apple Music clients get, though that one is a portion of their standard arrangement. Spotify may offer its substance in Hi-Fi quality for podcasts as well, which was proposed in 2023.

The modern subtle elements, plus conversation, are approximately extraordinarily wired, and remote earphones support upgraded highlights. You might also get the alternative of mash-up and altered tracks, which is interesting. But the benefits are impossible to conclude with highlights like Sound Experiences, Earphone Tuner, Library Professional, Playlist Professional, and Studio Sound; moreover, they seem to be included in the master arrangement, as we had said prior.

This unreleased arrangement seems to be a curious expansion, particularly if Spotify can meet the requests for which it is going to charge a premium. The most recent report does not discuss the conceivable Music Master cost, but prior, we had seen the Premium arrangement recorded with a cost of $19.99 (approximately Rs 1600) per month, which, as per the subtle elements shared, has a parcel of unused highlights that the stage considers merits a higher cost tag. At this month-to-month cost, individuals might never feel persuaded about the highlights on offer, and that may be one huge reason why Spotify has postponed its accessibility for so long.

Elon Musk Plans AI Candidate Winning US Elections in 2032

Billionaire Elon Musk stated that he thinks a candidate using artificial intelligence (AI) might run for president of the United States in 2032. In 2024, who will be the President of the United States? was a question posed to Elon Musk during a conversation during the 10th annual Breakthrough Prize presentation. The CEO of Tesla then laughed heartily and answered, “Who do you think will win the White House in 2032? What kind of artificial intelligence? Diffusion or transformers?”

Elon Musk previously stated that “if AI is smart enough, it could undermine democracy” about the impact of AI on elections. He also said that artificial intelligence (AI) might surpass human intelligence by 2026 and that the availability of electricity would limit technological advancements. “I think it’s probably next year, within two years,” he stated, defining AGI (artificial general intelligence) as intelligence greater than that of the smartest human. The billionaire further claimed that a shortage of processors is impeding the training of Elon Musk’s AI project, xAI’s Grok 2, which was unveiled as a competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
