WhatsApp chief denies Google buyout rumors

WhatsApp Nope

One of the biggest talking points online yesterday was Google’s purported takeover of the popular IM client, WhatsApp. According to speculation, WhatsApp was looking for close to $1 billion to secure a deal. A deal which, today, has been debunked by one of the company’s chiefs, Neeraj Arora. The executive spoke to AllThingsD and declined to comment any further than to say that a deal was not being negotiated. I guess that now means that any hopes it would reverse its decision to start charging its users a subscription fee are now completely gone.
