In a bid to make it easier for users to have a conversation on the platform, digital payments player PhonePe has launched a new chat feature on the app.

Through this feature, users can now request money or confirm the receipt of a payment without having the need of any other messaging app.

“PhonePe chat makes it really easy for our users to send money to their contacts while having a conversation. A user’s transaction history on the PhonePe app is displayed in the chat flow, making it a highly engaging experience,” Rahul Chari, Co-Founder and CTO, PhonePe, said in a statement.

In the coming weeks, we will enhance PhonePe chat with features like group chat which will make it easy for users to request/collect money from friends and family on the platform,” Chari added.

The feature, which was launched a week ago for both the Android and iOS devices, has been rolled out to over 185 million PhonePe users, according to the company.
