In a statement, i-Serve, the developer of UChat said that the app would allow users to have personal chats and group chats, send photos, videos, voice notes and stickers to other users as well as the convenience of making voice and video calls.
It said the app would also be equipped with an e-wallet component known as UChatPay that allow users to deposit funds into their accounts, send and receive money, transfer funds to another UChat user or to their own local bank accounts, make payments and pay bills.
“Technological advancements are happening rapidly. Cash is still relatively king in Malaysia so we want to transform the mindset of using physical cash to e-money and encourage the adoption of e-wallet,” said i-Serve MD Datuk Allan Goh.
“Our e-Wallet, UChatPay is made to transform the fundamental way Malaysians transact, from making small purchases at a sundry shop across the street to travelling while carrying nothing but your phone,” he added.
i-Serve specialises in web and application products, online payment solutions, e-money solutions and e-ticketing.
UChat is organising a two-day event UChat Songkran Day-Out event at Setia City Oval Lawn at Setia Alam this weekend to promote its app. All the transaction at the event could only be done on its app.
