WhatsApp messaging service free for everyone 

WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging service, is dropping its 1 US dollar annual subscription fee to go free for all users, the company’s chief executive has confirmed.

Speaking at a conference in Germany, WhatsApp chief Jan Koum said the annual fee would be scrapped immediately, and the service would become completely free to all users. Previously the app had been free for the first year before users were asked to pay for every subsequent year.

The charge was introduced after the app became free to download, with long-term iOS users who had paid for the app earlier in its life exempt from the charge as a thanks for paying for it in the first place.
