WhatsApp starts to charge businesses to send YOU messages inside the popular chat app

  • Companies will now be able to pay to put ads into user’s status updates 
  • Will also pay to be able to send messages to customers 
  • Around 60 billion messages are sent every day within the app 
  • Facebook hopes WhatsApp can help it following its recent stock market crash
  • Figures have also shown use of Facebook’s main app is starting to slow 

Facebook is overhauling WhatsApp in a bid to make money from the messaging app following its own disastrous results last week.

As Facebook shares tanked and Mark Zuckerberg’s firm saw $150bn wiped off its value last week, the firm now hopes WhatsApp, which it bought for $19bn in 2014,  can make it money.
