While buying WhatsApp back in 2012, Facebook promised that it will not alter the business model of the popular messaging app and will bombard it with ads. Now, the social giant, Facebook is going back on its promise it made. Recently, we have come to know that Facebook will bring ads to WhatsApp. However now, Facebook has announced that WhatsApp Ads For Android and iOS will Begin Rolling out in 2020.
WhatsApp Ads For Android and iOS will Begin Rolling out Next Year
WhatsApp Ads For Android and iOS will start rolling out first in the status feature. According to WhatsApp’s Vice President,
We are going to be putting ads in WhatsApp ‘Status’. That is going to be the primary monetization model for the company as well as an opportunity for the businesses to reach people on WhatsApp.”
This new feature will work similarly to Instagram. While browsing through stories of people, you will sometimes see sponsored posts. However, this is quite annoying for many people because it ruins the distraction-free experience for WhatsApp Lovers. Let’s see when will this new update makes its way to your Apps.
On the other hand, WhatsApp is finally bringing dark mode for its users in WhatsApp new beta update, so that they can enjoy less strain on their eyes. However, this dark mode is given a new name I.e. Night Mode. Currently, the WhatsApp night mode is in the testing process and the company will soon be launching it after the app passes the test.
