WhatsApp announced two initiatives to support the global fight against coronavirus. One is the opening of the WhatsApp Coronavirus Information Hub in partnership with the World Health Organization and UNDP, and the other is a $ 1 million grant to the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) at the Pointer Institute.

  3. Messages are sent to the user's mobile, which is really important for marketers and businesses. The message is viewed within few minutes, as people like to check their phones when any kind of notification appears on the screen.
