Hi guys, we just got word that WhatsApp will commence Ads display in its status feature. Now i don’t know if this is really important but i guess thats what you do when you go into a business right? to make profit.
The facebook owned messenger decided to do this as a primary mode of monetization for the company.
However, this will commence in the year 2019. Charlie Daniels hasn’t given a specific date on when this feature would commence but WhatsApp highlighted in previous reports that they’ll come in 2019.
This is not the first time we’ve heard about ads on WhatsApp. Facebook is eager for the messaging service, which it acquired for $19 billion in 2014, to start making money. WhatsApp said in August that businesses will be able to do things like provide real-time customer service and send information like boarding passes or shipping confirmations.
So thats its guys, expect ads (possibly targeted ads) in the application’s ‘status’ section come 2019
