Facebook has been facing a lot of heat lately for mishandling the data of its users, and amidst all this, the social networking giant seems to be rolling a new feature. The social networking platform is now giving the users an option to recharge a prepaid number via its platform. Spotted on the its Android version 188.8.131.52.94, this feature seems to be available only through the app and is easily accessible.
Android users can find the option of ‘Mobile Recharge’ by tapping on the right-most option on the top. If you don’t see it there, you can tap on ‘See More’ to find it.
Doing this will take you to a welcome screen saying, “Choose a plan and pay with your debit or credit card, its fast, secure and free.” Tap on ‘Recharge Now’, which will then take you to page that will ask you to input your number, select operator and browse the plans. Once you enter your number, Facebook automatically selects the operator, but if you have changed circles, you can select the current operator.
This feature comes after almost two-months after Facebook-owned WhatsApp started rolling out payment option to users in India. This feature, however, is powered by UPI which enables users to send and receive money easily.
