  • Instagram quietly launches payments for commerce

Other than sharing photos and videos, Instagram can do nearly everything Facebook and WhatsApp can do.

As part of the latest 2.18.51 update for the iOS version of WhatsApp, tapping on a link to an Instagram or Facebook video will now allow you to watch it right from WhatsApp - all in-line with your current conversation.

TechCrunch reader Genady Okrain first tipped us off to the payment feature. After all, Instagram and Facebook do heavily rely on the feature and it makes sense that it caters to a wider audience as well. While making it easier for businesses to operate by better-integrating them with such platforms, social media giants are increasingly commodifying what have traditionally been more personal spaces. Now Instagram has also rolled out a payments feature for select users. Maybe WhatsApp would allow users to get rid of ads by buying into a premium ad-free subscription for a fraction of the cost.
