Lahore (Web Desk): Facebook Messenger will add advertisements from next month just like other communication features do.

Facebook Messenger is one of the most popular messaging applications in the world right now. With 1.2 billion people using it monthly, any changes to it affects a lot of people.

Messenger head of product Stan Chudnovsky announced in a recent event at Fort Mason in San Francisco that Messenger will be adding ads to its app.

The beta testing of the ads feature was already underway in Australia and Thailand from January onwards.

These advertisements will be similar to what we see on Facebook itself and Instagram where between two posts there is often ‘sponsored content’ visible.
