So, what’s the problem? What are WhatsApp users mad about?
What is WhatsApp doing about it?
WhatsApp is trying hard to clear the air
Since then, WhatsApp has also been trying to clear the air in face of what it is calling “misinformation.” The messenger app also took it to its very own feature—WhatsApp status—to explain users that their privacy is not being threatened.
WhatsApp has also released some feature updates recently
Moreover, it has also rolled out about a couple of feature updates recently. This has been done in order to improve user experience on the app.
Some of the major feature updates of WhatsApp are the converting of “Archive” into “Read Later” and, the introduction of logout feature.
These new features are inarguably useful. And well, these may very well be some damage control moves in order to stop the outward flow of users.
WhatsApp is hyperactive with the marketing of its new app features along with trying to clear what it calls “misinformation” and “rumors.”
It is doing so much to win back its users, but there is one thing it is still adamant on.
WhatsApp won’t delete your account after 15th May
One major development in this matter is that WhatsApp— unlike stated earlier by it— won’t delete the accounts of those users who don’t accept its updated terms and policy by 15th May 2021.
However, such users would neither be able to access WhatsApp until they do accept the new terms.
Users will have partial functionality of WhatsApp for some time
WhatsApp promises a short period of partial functionality to those users who don’t accept the updated terms by the extended dead line. This means that the users will be able to:
- Receive calls
- Get notifications
But the WhatsApp users will not be able to:
- Read messages
- Send messages
