Facebook’s newly acquired messaging giant Whatsapp has come up with a new update for the Android version of the app.
There are a few privacy related features which the new update has, but the most interesting feature added is that the users can now pay for their friends’ and families’ subscriptions no matter what the platform is.
Right now, users can use the messaging service free for a year and later pay $0.99 as a yearly subscription. Whatsapp and Facebook are definitely looking out to promoting the invitation of new users onto the platform by adding this feature.
Right now, for Whatsapp, its growth is of high importance. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, is quite clear when it comes to monetization of Whatsapp. So, the growth of the app is priority and letting users invite and pay for others is a good step.
Whatsapp is also looking forward to incorporate voice calling in the later part of this year.
