Most people don’t remember this. However, WhatsApp was not always completely free. In fact, those who initially had an iPhone had to pay about one euro to download the app. This later became a kind of subscription. Every year there was another “yereto”. However, in 2016, everything changed and this platform started to be completely free. Now things will change and WhatsApp will start paying some users.
Payment for WhatsApp will start for some users
The WABetaInfo team has detected, in both android and iOS and Desktop Betas versions, that WhatsApp is considering creating subscriptions. This is especially for business version users. Of course they will earn. Right from the start, they can have their own link for users to start a conversation. Something like wa.me/empresa. It is undoubtedly much better and simpler than using a phone number.
It is true that companies can already create custom links for your WhatsApp. However, using the wa.me domain ensures more trust. However, account managers will be able to change the assigned name once every 90 days.
Clearer than this can not be. The picture above remembers the word Premium well. That is, the name of the plan was revealed. However, it is not known if there will be changes at the time of the official release.
The paid functions will be exclusive to WhatsApp Business accounts and optional. It now remains to be seen if this will reach consumers in the future but with other additional functions.
But the news doesn’t stop there.
It looks like an interesting new feature is on its way to WhatsApp that practically allows us to silently exit group chats. In other words, you can leave groups without notifying other users.
WhatsApp will allow you to leave the group silently
So far we all know how the system works. When we leave a group chat, other users are automatically notified. When this new system is active, no one will know anything. In fact, the only way for others to know is if they go to check on the participants in the conversation.
However, despite the silence, things would not be that secret. The group admins will know that we have left the group. Even after the arrival of this feature. But it makes sense. However, all the others will be in the “dark”.
In fact, the image below shows it quite well.
It was shared by the popular website wabetainfo and claims that this image was taken from the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS. That is, at the moment, for Android, we still do not have anything. However, if this feature is under development, it will reach both platforms.
