WhatsApp is the best instant mobile messaging platform with more than 1 billion monthly active users. Facebook bought this messaging app and gave a new update for group chats by increasing 256 allowed members in a single group. Before this update, the allowed members for each group was 100, and now it got increased by 256. This update also applies for both Android and iOS Smartphones. And the Blackberry and Windows smartphones users are waiting for this update.
The happy news for WhatsApp users is that the company use to charge $1 dollar as a yearly annual fee from the users. But for now, they gave up the $1 dollar fee (no fee, it’s free) for gaining more app users on the platform. There are not bigger upgrades to WhatsApp, In simple the company now allows 256 active app users for each group and dropped the annual fee from the users. The main reason for this update is for taking the company to the next level and growing their business. These are the usual thing which every company does for attracting their customers and gaining more users for growing bigger to reach the height.
Adding 256 members in a group is not as hard as understanding your girlfriend’s or Boyfriend’s mind.

Maybe in the feature, the company will come with better updated for gaining more and more users to grow even bigger. This not only benefits the company also it gives more usabilities for the app users. As said in Times of India, Facebook does not buy WhatsApp for billions of dollars to give users a free mobile messaging app. And this is due to monetizing WhatsApp for making more money like other business companies. As I said before this happens in every growing company, as joker says “if you are good at something, don’t do it for free”.
