At first, Whatsapp decided not to accept the new policy but now WhatsApp users are having a pop-up for the upcoming change.
Firstly, WhatsApp starts the test through direct in-app alerts. Users were concerned that WhatsApp will be sharing their personal information with its parent company Facebook. This will give access to private messages on Facebook. However, users were forced to update their WhatsApp otherwise, their account will be removed automatically.
Following are the limitations, which will get pace over time, will include:
- Inability to access your chat list
- Removal of the ability to receive incoming calls or notifications
- Eventually, WhatsApp “will stop sending messages and calls to your phone”
The policy update only works with communication that too with selected businesses within the app. Apart from this, WhatsApp will provide more payment options in-stream. In this way, this update seems to be a general scheme.
