My safaricom updated app with mpesa,pay bill and customer care support.

Safaricom have finally updated their 'my safaricom app' to include new features like M-pesa, which was missing in the previous versions.
The app, which was launched in April 2016, has seen major improvements since then, each new version much better than the former.
My Safaricom app was introduced with the aim of making safaricom customer's experience with safaricom easier and trendy, especially with the fact that for safaricom customers, life is all about lots of USSD numbers; one for topping up, checking balance, airtime and data, and so on.
Safaricom therefore decided to bring all these to one location, in some instances making some transactions one touch,So you don't need to worry about all those ussd codes.
You can use the app to perform and transact various safaricom services, from the basic like checking your airtime balance to payments using Lipa na Mpesa.
Here is how you can make the best out of the My Safaricom app:

1. How toCheck Balance on my Safaricom.

To send mpesa, click on 'send money' and enther the mobile number you want to send money to, and the among then press 'continue'. You will receive a confirmation notification with the recipient's phone number, name amount you've entered and the transaction cost.
