Ads were to be shown to the users on the messaging platform WhatsApp from this year but this plan has been postponed for the time being. At Facebook’s Marketing Summit held in the Netherlands last year, it was officially announced that ads would soon appear on WhatsApp. In this event, the company confirmed through some slides that soon the world’s most popular messaging app will be monetized (Facebook will earn through WhatsApp). Add on whatsapp By showing the earning plan has been canceled. Despite a large userbase, WhatsApp does not generate direct revenue. Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014 and since then many changes have been made in the platform. Last year it was said that in the early stages, advertisements would appear in the status feature of the app. We also see similar advertisements in Instagram at the moment. Earlier there were reports that WhatsApp will be serving ads on its platform from this year.
Getting new features
In the last few days, many new features have been added to WhatsApp. Here we are telling you about these new features so that you can enjoy WhatsApp chatting in a better way. Apart from advertisements, WhatsApp is also trying to improve overall experience for its business account users. The company will bring ‘richer message formats’ for business account users. Through which users will be able to easily share images and PDF files.
WhatsApp is completely free
WhatsApp’s Business Catalog can be integrated with Facebook’s existing Facebook Business Catalog. Let me tell, WhatsApp has been a completely free app so far and no ads on it bother users, but it is being said that it is going to change now. Facebook-owned WhatsApp will no longer have ads from 2020. However, with new features, the experience of users on the app will be better than before.
