WhatsApp confirms ads coming in 2020

23 May 2019 4

There has been a long standing rumour regarding WhatsApp incorporating the use of ads. However, till now, no ads have shown their ugly faces on the free messaging service. Last year, the VP of WhatsApp did confirm that ads were coming to Status in WhatsApp. More news has recently surfaced concerning this. The company confirms that ads in WhatsApp will arrive in 2020.

This isn’t much of a surprise as it was expected to happen. However, considering the fact that it hasn’t happened as of yet, users may have gathered a little glimmer of hope. It’s safe to say that there is no longer any hope of WhatsApp going back on its decision to implement ads in its Status. Have a look at the tweet made by Matt Navarra regarding ads in WhatsApp.

Most other messaging platform and social media platforms have given into ads a long time back. Even the biggest of them all have all taken to it. Perhaps one should give credit where its due and thank WhatsApp for keeping its messaging platform advertisement free for so long.

From Facebook's point of view, I'm ok with WhatsApp ads. After all, when they purchased the app, many felt it was far more expensively purchased that time. What's wrong in expecting returns?
