Technology WhatsApp to go ahead with 'full feature' money transfer service in India
German court rules Facebook use of personal data illegal
The verdict, from a Berlin regional court, comes as Big Tech faces increasing scrutiny in Germany over its handling of sensitive personal data that enables it to micro-target online advertising. The Federation of German Consumer Organisations (vzvb) said that Facebook's default settings and some of its terms of service were in breach of consumer law, and that the court had found parts of the consent to data usage to be invalid.
WhatsApp will launch a "full feature" inter-bank money transfer service in India, its biggest market, after a test involving a million users, National Payments Corp of India said.
Friday's statement marks the de facto official launch of WhatsApp's new service as NPCI is the body set up by the central bank and lenders to oversee payment services.
WhatsApp launched a limited service in India, where it has more than 200 million users, last week. This uses customers' phone numbers linked to bank accounts to facilitate payments and marks the first global foray into money transfers by the Facebook-owned firm.

MLS Live to close up shop as U.S. streaming rights land with ESPN. So what about Canada?Tuesday’s announcement that Major League Soccer’s streaming rights will be shifting to the soon-to-be-launched online-only ESPN+ sometime this spring has left Canadians somewhat in the lurch.
Four banks will join United Payments Interface (UPI) - which powers the payments service - for WhatsApp, NPCI said. At present, India's third-biggest lender ICICI Bank processes the fund transfers on WhatsApp, the application shows.
WhatsApp's popularity in India is likely to pose a threat to established players, but it is entering a competitive market after Alphabet Inc's Google launched a payments app last year to compete with local players.
The country's cashless economy got a boost after Prime Minister Narendra Modi banned old high-value currency notes in late 2016, leading to a surge in online payment providers such as homegrown player Paytm, the biggest in India.
Paytm, which is backed by Alibaba and SoftBank expressed concerns about the security of WhatsApp's new payments service in a statement released on Friday.
