WhatsApp has announced in its blog post that it is dropping the 99 cents annual subscription fee that comes after the first year of free usage of the messaging service. The $0.99 fee was introduced some few years back and was only applicable to the new users. The earliest users of the messaging service got lifetime free usage of the messaging service.
In the blog post, the Company wrote, “As we’ve grown, we’ve found that this approach hasn’t worked well. Many WhatsApp users don’t have a debit or credit card numbers, and they are worried they’d lose access to their friends and family after their first year.
