The competition in the Kenyan telecom industry is getting heated up even with the implementation of the Finance Bill. With the focus now shifting to data, telcos are now giving their subscribers extra offerings. Airtel’s free WhatsApp from its Amazing Data Bundles does exactly that with the exception that your data bundles are not charged when using the chat app, unlike similar offerings from Airtel’s rivals.
Airtel Amazing Data Bundles
The free WhatsApp comes in handy, especially to Airtel’s 9.7 million data conscious subscribers. Here’s what you can do with this offering:
Update your Status
WhatsApp status, a clone from Snapchat’s popular ephemeral feature, Stories allows you to share moments in the day with friends and family. You can do this by sharing photos, text, videos or gifs to let your friends or family know what you’re up to. You can even share a funny meme or a clever quote without worrying about the depletion of your Airtel data bundles.
WhatsApp for business
If you’re a small or medium business, you get to use the free WhatsApp offering from Airtel to reach out to prospective clients or offer customer support. You can use it connect with existing loyal customers either when promoting a new product or announcing a sale. If you’re a restaurant or a concierge service, WhatsApp can be used for booking purposes. This will cut the amount of money you’d spend to call or email them and costs saved can be used to grow your business.
Add live location
“Where are you” is probably among the top 5 typed phrases in text messaging history. With WhatsApp live location feature you can share it with someone else. Airtel’s free WhatsApp comes in handy especially if you run out of data bundles and want to let your squad know where you at. It’s easy and much convenient for anyone who is waiting for you.
Chat with Friends and Family
WhatsApp is the fastest growing messaging app and allows you to text across multiple platforms either iOS, Android or the web. With Airtel’s free WhatsApp, you get to stay updated on your favourite groups especially during those interesting conversations and heated discussions. You never miss those witty comebacks. All this and your bundles stay the same since Airtel doesn’t charge data used on WhatsApp so they get to last for long.
