Will WhatsApp acquiesce and offer users something that might anger them?!
Reports indicate that the world’s most popular messaging app, WhatsApp, may start showing ads.
The company has categorically ruled out ads being displayed in incoming messages, as they may appear in the “Status” feature, which works like Instagram Stories.
WhatsApp has long resisted introducing ads to any part of its platform, which distinguishes it from other meta platforms, such as Instagram and Facebook, which heavily support ads.
It has long been rumored that WhatsApp is looking into adding ads to its app. But the app’s management has largely resisted that temptation, partly due to concerns about whether it would alarm privacy-conscious users.
In September, the Financial Times reported that the company was looking to change that situation, as it evaluated whether to display ads in the chat list.
Meta completely denied that it was testing or working on this feature, or that it planned to do so. “We don’t do that,” WhatsApp chief Will Cathcart said on the X platform.
But in an interview with Brazil’s Folha De S.Paulo, Cathcart was asked if the app would remain free and not show ads. He said some ads may reach other parts of the platform.
He explained that the company could also offer the option of charging people a fee to subscribe to the new “Channels” tool feature. This can also be announced within those channels.
He did not provide any confirmed information about when the feature will be launched, or any commitment that it will actually be introduced.
