WhatsApp To Start Displaying Adverts From 2019August 6, 2018 2 By Mr Kings
Not long ago when Facebook revealed it plan s to monetize its WhatsApp messaging platform. 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 in status bar.
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. The ads will work in the similar way Snapchat Stories features works, photos or video posted inside Status will disappear after 24 hours.
According to a report and information concerning this new feature, 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.
“WhatsApp 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,”
According to the report, Ads will run on Facebook’s advertising system, and WhatsApp says it’s confident users will adapt to this new approach.
Sadly, there’s no indo on how to block the Status ads for now.
