This one is a bit of relief and a good hope for millions of WhatsApp users around the world. Why? Just because, my WhatsApp expiry date is extended for 1 more year without any payment. Team WhatsApp could have started to charge for extend the messenger usage. I was waiting for the expiry date to renew the licence on September 15th, but today suddenly I have got a push notification on my android phone that “WhatsApp expiry date extended!“.
Do you know, WhatsApp doesn’t show annoying ads anywhere in their app, since they have got another fantastic revenue model of charging the users for extend their subscription to the app by giving first year free. This revenue model is aiming to give the company adequate revenue. This free extending step by the company might be for few users with certain number of friends or contacts, so that they will get addicted to the application and forced to pay for the subscription.
However, it is better you check your expiry date of your WhatsApp messenger on your mobile phone. To check, follow the below step:
Open WhatsApp > press Menu Key on your handset > Go to Settings > tap on Account > and select Payment info. There you will see your phone number and Service expiration date.
