Above is the official tweet by WhatsApp’s Vice president “Chris Daniels.”
This might be the reason why WhatsApp’s founders left Facebook. They sold WhatsApp to Facebook with an agreement that Facebook will never show ads to Whatsapp users, and now Facebook can’t help but show ads to generate revenue, and they are going to do it.
Whatsapp messaging app was founded in 2009 and sold to Facebook in 2014 for $19 billion with no ads agreement.
We found the company will also allow users to disable the ads in their WhatsApp app, and sources even saying that advertisements will be visible for only WhatsApp business users. So normal app users don’t need to worry.
How to Disable WhatsApp Ads in Story?
It’s not confirmed yet, but sources are saying that the Settings menu will have an option to disable the ads for status in the privacy section.
