WhatsApp Messenger is the most used application in the world and it has almost about 1,000 million users. One reason it has been criticized so far is because of its annual fee of $0.99 This is no longer an issue, since WhatsApp announced that it will become free across all platforms.
Logically, a messaging application wants to reach all users as possible. According WhatsApp Inc., the annual subscription has been one of the problems that growth has not been greater. The reason is that many users do not have a credit or debit card and fear losing access to your contacts after the first year, so directly decide not to download and install the application and use applications go directly to the competition.
“Today, we are announcing that WhatsApp is going to be free to users. We aren’t going to charge a dollar a year anymore,”…….Many WhatsApp users don’t have a debit or credit card number and they are worried they’d lose access to their friends and family after their first year. So over the next several weeks, we’ll remove fees from the different versions of our app and WhatsApp will no longer charge you for our service.”
The first thing that comes to mind is how to make money if no subscription and we ask that add ads, but there will be no advertising. WhatsApp Inc. test new tools with which users can communicate with businesses and organizations. There have been no details of how these tools would work, but the first thing that comes to mind is that we can contact the companies in a similar way as we do on Twitter to answer questions, for example.
WhatsApp clearly still has much to improve, but that is free and is an important step. In the future it is hoped that we can send files from the application, which is already possible with other applications such as Telegram, and make video calls. But perhaps his pending is a native application for PCs and tablets that does not force us to use WhatsApp website.
