Xiaomi is about to launch Mi Pay -A UPI based payment app in India soon. Xiaomi launched the Mi Pay platform in China in 2016 and has conducted several tests and trials for the Indian market too.The app will use Indian Government’s UPI payment interface and is currently waiting for the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) approval.
Xiaomi will also partner with many private money lending firms to provide easy loans to its users. This is similar to what Google announced yesterday at its Google For India Event. While Google has partnered with Banks like HDFC Bank to provide quick loan, Xiaomi will be going with private firms. The Chinese company has partnered with a few in past to provide quick money in India.
WhatsApp is also stuck with Government approval authority was concerned with the data privacy through the Facebook-owned platform. Google has also changed the name of its UPI based Google Tezz app to Google Pay and will bring the app to more global markets soon.
Xiaomi Mi Pay will be available on all Xiaomi smartphones and will be limited to them only. We can expect Xiaomi to partner with different merchants and business partners to add more features to its payment platform in the country.
