WhatsApp said to be working to introduce ads in the iOS app

If you are using WhatsApp on the iPhone, ads could be coming your way soon! 

WABetaInfo, who has a solid track record of providing accurate information about upcoming WhatsApp features, claims that Facebook is already working on introducing ads to the iOS version of the instant messaging app.

Ads will reportedly appear within the WhatsApp Status where you typically share photo and video montages to your contacts. It is not known how these ads will be targeted. Facebook could associate phone numbers with user profiles on the social networking site. 

The ad feature is said to be still in testing phase and may take a while before it is implemented. As and when that happens, users may flock to other instant messaging apps such as Telegram.
