Millions of Indians use Paytm for payments every day. They would now be able to chat and pay on the go using ‘Paytm Inbox’. This service will add more convenience as it allows its users to chat with their family and friends and send and receive money, while consumers can interact with their local shopkeepers to place their orders and pay at the same time.
How to use Paytm Inbox:
- Download the updated version of the Paytm app on your Android smartphone.

- Tap on the New Message icon and select the contacts you wish to chat with.
- Alternatively, you can also create a new chat group using the ‘Create New Group’ option
- If users send a message to wrong chat or the message contains a mistake, the ‘Inbox’ feature allows them to recall that message. To access the option, Paytm users can tap and press the message they want to recall and click on the ‘Delete for All’ option.
