Apple is planning to add a new feature in Apple Pay that will allow users of the mobile payments service to quickly send/receive money to/from their contacts, according to a latest report from Bloomberg.
As per the report, the Cupertino-based company - which sold over 230 million iPhones last year - is already in talks with banks about the said peer-to-peer payments feature, and could announce it as soon as next year.
For those who aren't already aware, a similar money-sending feature is already being offered by social networking giant Facebook - it's available to users of the company's Messenger app in the US.
Apple Pay and Samsung Pay is like on Blackberry BBM Pay where you can pay a person directly haha
Some banks got an app but its not so widespread like samsung/google/apple pay. I wish something like this will be available also in android devices and lumias... its greater thing than some forcetouch.
Please stop calling it "peer to peer". Bitcoin is peer to peer. Whatever Paypal, and Google Wallet and this new Apple system will be doing will be more like "bank to bank". You're transferring money from one bank account to another - not from one per...
