WhatsApp Will Start Showing Adverts From Next Year
Recently, we told you that Facebook is planning to monetize its WhatsApp messaging platform. We are still on the matter. Most people would say they love the instant messaging app without ads. This makes one chatting smooth and easy chatting, nothing like annoying ads. Well, that will stop soon as WhatsApp will start displaying ads from 2019.
According to a WhatsApp spokesperson who confirmed the report that the messaging app is planning to run ads inside the Status tab of the app. To recall, ‘Status’ is the second tab you see in your WhatsApp window right between the ‘Chats’ and ‘Calls’ tabs. Similar to Snapchat Stories features, photos or video posted inside Status disappear after 24 hours.
Effective from year 2019, WhatsApp will start showing ads in the Status tab. We hope that just like our posts, ads in the Status will also disappear after 24 hours.
â€œWhatsApp does not currently run ads in Status though this represents a future goal for us, starting in 2019. We will move slowly and carefully and provide more details before we place any Ads in Status,â€
According to the report, Ads will run on Facebookâ€™s advertising system, and WhatsApp says itâ€™s confident users will adapt to this new approach.
Sadly, there’s no indo on how to block the Status ads for now.
