The controversy of WhatsApp payment has been silenced. A few months ago it was the only thing that was talked about in technology blogs, if the service was not profitable, if Line was better, if we had to look for alternatives, etc. Nowadays things have changed, WhatsApp no longer matters, in fact, it does not even matter having to pay being such a widely used service. However, some users of the Android application are finding that their account has passed a “lifetime” expiration.
It is very curious. It is happening with all users who paid for the service at the time for some reason. This group of users may have done it for three reasons, the first is that they had an iPhone or in some situation they used an iPhone with their number and paid for the application to be able to use it. In such a case, when swiping your card to an Android smartphone, WhatsApp You acknowledge that the service has already been paid for. The other circumstance is that you have voluntarily decided to pay even if you had a gratuity at that moment. The last possibility is that it is one of the few users whose service has expired and they have had to pay.
Users who came from iPhone, had a message on their Android that indicated that their account would expire 10 years after the moment they had made the payment for the first time. However, things have changed, and now, what is indicated in Service expiration is “For life.” This small change is a small step by those responsible for the service, who could have seen it convenient that users who paid, at least if they did it a long time ago, can enjoy WhatsApp unlimitedly. However, it is striking that this has not been reported in a more remarkable way. It never hurts to check what expiration the service now indicates in each case. Remember that you can do it if you are located in the section of WhatsApp chats, pressing the Menu button, accessing Setting, coming into Account info, and in Payment information.
