With this integration, over 8 million Indus OS users can now easily access UPI on their phone without downloading any app. Users can use UPI payment directly from SMS/ Messaging and Dialer interface. They still have the option to use third-party apps. But the way UPI payment works on IndusOS, I don’t think there is any need to download BHIM or other UPI apps.
The company also explains the process of payment and this is so simple. The Indus Keyboard will have a ₹ symbol. Tapping on it will initiate UPI transactions within the messaging/chatting app. Users can directly transfer money just by tapping on the ₹ symbol.
It is also worth to note that the company already announced to bring Aadhaar-authenticated OS. With UPI integration and Aadhaar-authentication, the company is committed to offering a highly secure framework. This will also help the company in building trust among its users.

The payment platform is expected to launch within this quarter. If you use a mobile phone running on IndusOS, your online payments are going to become a lot simpler.
