Following LINE’s surge in users by double recently, Whatsapp finally has an action to get users back. People went furious in Hong Kong about the $1 charge imposed to android users despite the backward and traditional functions of Whatsapp compared to many messaging apps like LINE, ChatON, Viber…etc. Whatsapp has responded to the grievances of people and finally adding one more year of trial period for users who didn’t pay their Whatsapp subscription fee. Those who have already paid before their subscription will also get an extra year of subscription for free.
Android charging scheme:
Free users – one year additional free trial
Paid users – one year additional free on top of your subscription
If you hated Whatsapp charging the $1 on you, now you get an answer from Whatsapp – additional one year free of charge. At the moment it is hard to tell whether users will switch back to Whatsapp after previously dumping, isolating, deleting the app and changed your entire social networks to LINR or something else. Well, what’s done Ka done, switch back to Whatsapp of you want to.
