Free Whatsapp Expiring Soon

There has been a rumour going around saying the popular smartphone app, Whatsapp will not be free anymore. This is a total hoax as been confirmed by Whatsapp themselves in their blog HERE. Should have known it the moment the message says;

“The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.”

I love Whatsapp very much, especially when it’s free… Whatsapp is the best communication tool for me to get connected with my family and friends.

      Hi, Apple pie.
      Yes, you’re right… but then again I think even Whatsapp themselves are aware that not that many people are willing to…

      Appreciate your coming by and comment very much. Thank you.

      Hi, Hira.

      So sorry to hear that… Maybe you could try reinstall again and see if it makes any difference. Thank you for coming by.

    I just deleted it, when I was asked to updated it and could use it for 1 more year for free before I need to pay.99/year.

    Easier to delete and find something else.

      Hi, Tony.

      I love using Whatsapp very much, so I would if I were you even if it is only for a year… Thank you for coming by and appreciate your sharing very much.

    There are other similar and better apps out there that are free such as “viber” wich also allows you to make free phone calls

    “wechat” also

    • Ruziha Osman says:

      You’re quite right, Lance. However I don’t quite like how Viber works, so I would choose Wechat if I ever need to replace Whatsapp. 🙂

      Appreciate your coming by very much. Thank you.
