WhatsApp Will Automatically Start Showing Advertisements In Status Starting From 2019 1
The worst nightmare has happened or should I say is about to happen. Ads are slowly finding their way to whatsapp. How do you show me ads that I am possibly interested in without having some form of tracking in place. I believe this move might actually make many people reconsider switching away from Facebook owned apps.

WhatsApp Will Automatically Start Showing Advertisements In Status Starting From 2019 2

According to a WhatsApp spokesperson has confirmed that the chat app is planning to run ads inside the Status tab of the app. To recall, ‘Status‘ is the second tab you see in your WhatsApp window right between the ‘Chats‘ and ‘Calls‘ tabs. Similar to Snapchat Stories features, photos or video posted inside Status disappear after 24 hours.

Starting from year 2019, WhatsApp will show ads in the Status tab. We hope that just like our posts, ads in the Status will also disappear after 24 hours.

“WhatsApp does not currently run ads in Status though this represents a future goal for us, starting in 2019. We will move slowly and carefully and provide more details before we place any Ads in Status,”

According to the report, Ads will run on Facebook’s advertising system, and WhatsApp says it’s confident users will adapt to this new approach.

Unfortunately, blocking the Status ads will not be possible. I hope we find a workaround to this

Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 15

The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.

From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.

Here are the following specifications from the teaser;

• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display

• Android 9 – the latest android version

• In-display Fingerprint sensor

• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM

• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight

• 3500mAh battery

I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.

What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
