In a blog post they have also announced that they will soon be working towards helping users connect with businesses using WhatsApp.

The company has announced the decision to make the app free of cost in their blog, giving the following explanation:

“For many years, we’ve asked some people to pay a fee for using WhatsApp after their first year.

As we’ve grown, we’ve found that this approach hasn’t worked well. Many WhatsApp users don’t have a debit or credit card number and they worried they’d lose access to their friends and family after their first year.

So over the next several weeks, we’ll remove fees from the different versions of our app and WhatsApp will no longer charge you for our service.”
