WhatsApp is reportedly working on enabling cashback for the marketing of its Payments feature, redesigning the group info page, and adding a feature to quickly create icons for groups. All of these features are reportedly under development and not yet available to beta testers. The refund feature showed WhatsApp Payments users a Rs. 10 cashback on some transactions, which will apparently be credited after 48 hours.
WhatsApp Feature Tracker WABetaInfo has published some new articles on these new features. According to WABetaInfo, a screenshot of the cashback feature shows that WhatsApp will notify users that they can earn cashback on their next payment. The tracker indicates that users can receive up to Rs. 10 cashback on their payment but this value may change before the official release of the feature.
According to the report, the cashback is only for UPI payments in India, and other details are limited at this time. It is not known which users will get this cashback, or what other conditions will apply, but WABetaInfo says it will be credited 48 hours after making a payment. This was spotted in WhatsApp for Android beta version 220.127.116.11.
In WhatsApp for Android beta 18.104.22.168, the company was spotted developing a new group icon editor feature. This will allow users to quickly create icons for groups, in case they don’t have an image. Users can also choose the background color of the icon. As it is under development, features like placing emojis and stickers cannot be seen yet, but are likely to be incorporated in the future.
WhatsApp is also working on the redesign of the group info page, to introduce chat and call buttons in the front and center. This new overhaul was spotted in WhatsApp for iOS beta version 22.214.171.124. The new design brings much bigger buttons for chat, audio and video calls. Even the share button will be important for all group admins to easily share the invite link. All of the features mentioned above are said to be still under development.
