WhatsApp is introducing a new shortcut to quickly send payments. Previously you had to open the chat action sheet in order to send payments, instead WhatsApp is now placing a dedicated button on the chat bar:

This button is available for Indian users that have installed the recent versions of WhatsApp beta for Android 2.21.17. People from Brazil might also be eligible to get the same button for their currency, but there is no evidence right now. If you’re from Brazil and you see the payment chat shortcut, be free to report!
The button is also under development on WhatsApp for iOS, and it will be available in a future update.
