Ads will appear in the app
The messaging platform charges a small fee from some customers on its business service. This payment has to be made in lieu of sending the receipt and confirmation to the reminder reminder on WhatsApp. For normal users, there will be no change related to payment in the app and they will be able to do the same messaging as before.
