The year 2020 seems to be more eventful for the Facebook-owned messaging platform. WhatsApp brings several nifty features for users last year. Now WhatsApp is planning to bring more and more new features to enhance user experience. One of the highlighted key features that WhatsApp is going to introduce this year is Status ads. The company has talked about this feature before as well.
WhatsApp will soon show ads to users. The WhatsApp ads were revealed by the company itself at Facebook Marketing Summit (FMC) 2019 that took place in the Netherlands. Talking about ads at FMC, the company said that in the ads, users will be able to see the name of the advertiser along with their associated advert.
WhatsApp confirmed that users will not able to see the advertiser’s contact profile picture. The users will be able to visit the advertisement by swiping up – the company said. WhatsApp Status ads will work similarly to Instagram Stories.
However, the WhatsApp is yet to officially reveal when the Status ads feature will start rolling out. Considering WhatsApp is already working on the ads feature we can expect the official launch very soon. The feature will be available for both Android and iOS.
