WhatsApp Is Now Free for Everyone, No Subscription Required
WhatsApp is one of the most popular alternative messaging apps in the world, despite the fact that most users charge $ 0.99 a year from it. Now this fee is gone for everyone.
As the company announced in a blog post today, the company is ditching the already tiny annual subscription cost. He also promises that he will not substitute advertising for payment. Instead, WhatsApp is experimenting with ways to partner with businesses to deliver messages to users within the app itself. For example, if your bank is already sending you a notification of a recent transaction, WhatsApp wants to process it directly.
It’s unclear if this method of monetizing the app will work, but given that the company is owned by Facebook, they probably have room to experiment. In the meantime, all users can now use WhatsApp for free without restrictions. Not bad for a Monday.
