Yes, this is a new feature of whatsapp and it is called Pay for a friend.
When I just log into my Whatsapp after so many days which I deleted it, I suddenly noticed this new feature and that’s why I came to make people understand it because on seeing it at the first time I didn’t know what it is.
However, you can download or install the new feature or may I say version using your Android device on the official whatsapp page and also it is available on Play Store but the one on play store is more older than the one on whatsapp official page.

This new feature of Whatsapp called Pay for a Friend feature enables you to pay for your friends Whatsapp subscription.
Do you know that after you first year free subscription you will be required to subscribe to Whatsapp services to be able to use the app on subsequent years.
Now the amounts for Whatsapp subscription is US$0.99 [not up to one dollar] a year but you can also pay for 3 years at the cost of US$2.67 (10% Off) or even 5 years for US$3.71 (25% OFF). And this Whatsapp subscription payments can only be made through Google Wallet and Paypal.
