PhonePe UPI app was launched in August 2016 where the company partnered with Yes Bank Ltd for the UPI transactions. The company provides users with a lot of offers and extensive TV advertisements are being done by the company. Today, PhonePe has launched its new ‘PhonePe Keyboard’ that will allow user to make payments without exiting a current app and make UPI based digital payments easier.
PhonePe Keyboard looks similar to Google Keyboard for Android, but this new keyboard includes a dedicated PhonePe button to the top left of the keyboard, right above the ‘Q’ alphabet. The dedicated PhonePe button will give users instant access to Send money, Request money, Check Balance without exiting the current app. Users can directly access the important functions of PhonePe whilst still using the current application.
