WhatsApp recently announced that it would be dropping its subscription model, making the instant messaging platform completely free for all of its subscribers.
One of the changes that have accompanied this new development is the removal of a subscription due date. Users of WhatsApp are familiar with a prompt for a renewal that comes with an expiration of the service when payment is due. Now that subscription fee has been scrapped, this will no longer be an issue.
WhatsApp users have been receiving notifications advising them that they have been granted an extension to the service and the new expiration date is “Lifetime”.
This same offer is also displayed under the service expiration section which can be found under the payment info tab.
It’s all just a reminder that while WhatsApp starts to explore other avenues for generating revenue, subscribers can enjoy it for free, forever. In Zimbabwe user hadn’t been paying for WhatsApp, but this termination of subscriptions now means having to not worry about renewing the service.
