paytm users can now chat and transact together on one platform. The digital wallet company has launched a Inbox, a new window in Paytm that will allow users to send money, exchange texts, videos, audio message and even share the location.
“We are excited to launch Paytm Inbox today, a new offering on our app with a fast and simple messaging service that will let you chat with your friends and family, and send/request money at the same time. You can even chat with your friendly neighborhood shopkeeper and order stuff easily and send them money instantly on delivery,” the company announced on its blog.
The Paytm Inbox also comes with Delete for Everyone button. Just like in WhatsApp, the Delete for everyone or recall button in Paytm Inbox allows user to revoke the sent message. However there’s no time-limit to revoke the message with Inbox. WhatsApp’s Delete for Everyone is a time-sensitive feature and it allows you to revoke messages sent only within 7 minutes. With Paytm Inbox, you can recall the message anytime you want. To access the option, you can tap and press the message you want to recall and click on the ‘Delete for All’ option.This service is live on Android and will be available to iOS users soon.
