According to screenshots posted by the Novi CEO, Stephane Kasriel, the application now supports transactions inside of the app via a new money-sending interface. Users will be able to choose the number of funds that they send and confirm the transaction directly in the dialogue with the recipient.
Meta, previously known as Facebook, has been working on the implementation of cryptocurrency payments inside of its apps for a long time after dropping its plans for the creation of its own digital currency due to regulatory concerns.
WhatsApp is not going to set a commission or restrictions for this service.
Stephane Kasriel tweeted
A new way to try Novi digital wallet. Starting today, a limited number of US users will be able to send and receive money using this platform on WhatsApp. It will be as easy as sending a message.
More information on WhatsApp’s integration with the Novi platform can be found on the company’s website.
