WhatsApp will include Facebook's Novi wallet in-app

Tuesday 2 November 2021 15:28 CET | News

Rebranded to Meta, Facebook has started testing its Novi cryptocurrency wallet on WhatsApp, as a part of a pilot programme in the US.

With Novi, WhatsApp users will be able to collect and deliver payments instantly through the platform. The update is already available via Google Pay beta programme, leading to the messaging app’s version 2.21.22.17.

Novi works as a digital pocket that allows users to transfer and accept e-cash instantly, without handling additional fees for transactions. It also lets users access their bank accounts and connect a card, as well as withdrawing cash into the bank accounts. The app is the latest in Facebook’s family and will be soon integrated with other members of Zuckerberg’s group. 

Currently, testing the recently launched Novi into WhatsApp is only done internally, between the company’s developers in the US, and there is no official date for when it will become publicly available.
