WhatsApp ads are coming next year and here's what they look like

WhatsApp ads are coming next year and here's what they look like”

Facebook is a profit-driven organization and as such, it was inevitable that we'll start seeing some type of advertisements inside WhatsApp since the day it purchased the text-messaging app.

WhatsApp is working to implement a new feature which will allow users to share their status updates to Facebook, WaBetaInfo reports. The Android and iPhone versions of WhatsApp were also said to have the necessary implementation for hosting ads. Since the acquisition, the social media titan has been thinking to monetize the messaging app.

With the arrival of the Add to Facebook Story button, WhatsApp users would be able to easily share their status updates on Facebook. Also, there will be a swipe up feature to reach link for shopping. The company showed off how those ads will look like at its Facebook Marketing Summit 2019, held in the Netherlands this week. Later, the development was shared by social media guru Matt Navarra, further fastening its authenticity.

WhatsApp Ads For Android and iOS will start rolling out first in the status feature.

The ads will appear in WhatsApp Status. However, users are yet to see the change. However, this is quite annoying for many people because it ruins the distraction-free experience for WhatsApp Lovers. The product catalogue on WhatsApp is also said to be integrated within existing Facebook Business Manager catalogue.
