Delta to supply free in-flight use of WhatsApp, Fb Messenger and iMessage
Beginning October 1, passengers on most Delta can have free entry to WhatsApp, Fb Messenger and iMessage. To entry the function, a passenger should log into Delta’s in-flight wifi portal powered by Gogo. That is first time an airline has supplied such a service all through its fleet.
Conventional SMS messages is not going to work. Solely the aforementioned cell messaging providers are supported at launch and customers will be unable to ship movies or footage. Passengers are, fortunately, not ready to make use of this service to dwell stream from their flight.
I fly loads and it is a important free service to me. Over numerous flights, I bought a expensive Gogo web package deal simply to make use of iMessage. More often than not in a flight I don’t wish to test my e mail or Slack or Twitter. When flying I would like some me time, however generally, it’s additionally good to simply chat with some associates and now that may be carried out free of charge.
Even earlier than this, there was some hacks and workarounds to let customers entry these providers with out paying. Not that I’m the form of man to use such loopholes.
