Business, News

Jan Koum, founder of Facebook owned instant messaging application Whatsapp, announced at DLD  conference held in Munich, Germany that the 1$ subscription fee that users are supposed to pay after a year of free service is being waived off. After Facebook acquired, Whatsapp, it was announced that users will need to pay a 1 USD subscription after one year and that time is approaching fast.

The Whatsapp blog mentioned that, “Nearly a billion people around the world today rely on WhatsApp to stay in touch with their friends and family… That’s why we’re happy to announce that WhatsApp will no longer charge subscription fees.” It will take several weeks to phase out the payment part from all versions of Whatsapp. The primary reason behind this decision is said to be the fact that a large number of Whatsapp users do not own a credit or debit card.

While some users are worried that Whatsapp might introduce third party ads to bear the costs, Jan Koum assured that will not happen and Whatsapp will instead dabble is different tools such as getting weather information, flight information and bank transaction related details to increase the usability and user base of the app. For the time being, enjoy free Whatsapp messaging.
