Now you have to pay for Whatsapp.
The Android mobile price is 0.99 $ / year or what is the same about 0.89 euros / year and Whatsapp provides all methods of payment.
Now the company isn’t going to expand the service as it used to do months ago when you had downloaded a new version. Now, when you install the new version you have to pay for the application.
How long do you have to pay for Whatsapp?
Go to Menu >> Settings >> Account Information >> Payment information
Obviusly it’s not a fraud.However, many people are reluctant for giving their account number. But there are other alternatives, one of them is LINE which is a very pwerful application.
There is no doubt about that, the Whatsapp official web advertises it:
After many users have chosen to Download LINE after Whatsapp have begun to demand payment for the license use, Whatsapp has opted to launch a plan for the licenses use depending on the contract length: 3 years (10% discount) and 5 years (25% discount), this way the user pays now and forgets it for a few years.
The problem of paying for Whatsapp is not the 0.89 euros a year but the fact of having to enter a credit card number to associate it with Google Wallet to pay. For that reason Whatsapp has decided to allow other payment ways: Paypal, Google Wallet or post a payment URL. So we don’t have to enter our credit card number any more if we don’t want.
