They also said the app is currently in beta mode and thus there may be some bug issues. The app will run on all Android devices with Android 5.0 and above. It will soon be available on the iOS.
Other features include viewing and sharing updated Aadhaar profile via QR (Quick Response) code, and sharing eKYC (electronic Know Your Customer) details with service providers such as telecommunications companies.
It will also be helpful in places where you need to provide your identity but don’t have an ID proof with you or in case you forget to bring one.
