Meta has set the record straight, saying it is not bringing ads to WhatsApp, despite a report this week claiming otherwise.
Financial Times reported that Meta was considering introducing ads into WhatsApp in an effort to boost revenue. WhatsApp head Will Cathcart took to X to quash the report.

This is a rumor that seems to reappear every year or two, but Meta has so far not opted to pursue such a strategy.
