WhatsApp users will be blocked from chat app unless they accept new rules

WHATSAPP fans will be left without access to the popular chat platform unless they accept new terms the Facebook-owned company has confirmed.

Most users are unlikely to want to delete their account, after all, WhatsApp is still the most popular chat app on the planet and the Facebook-owned company recently announced that 100 billion messages are sent through the platform. everyday. There is no information on what exactly the changes mean for users and the company tells Naijateck.com that they currently do not have a statement to offer.

However, WhatsApp has confirmed that all users must agree to the new terms before February 8, 2021 if they wish to continue using WhatsApp.

A spokesperson also told Naijateck.com, “We’ll be updating our terms of service and privacy policy as we work to make WhatsApp a great way to get answers or help from a business.”

WhatsApp recently outlined its plans for more interactions with businesses with users able to chat directly with firms via the app.

WhatsApp users plans

There are even plans to help users buy products straight from a chat with WhatsApp’s research showing people prefer to message a business to get help and they’re more likely to make a purchase when they can do so.

We’ll have to wait and see exactly what’s included in the terms and conditions when they are announced in February but it appears if you don’t like them you might need to find another way to communicate with friends and family.

News of this change comes as WhatsApp rolled out another big update last week with the introduction of more interactive wallpapers.

The Facebook-owned firm says that it is releasing an upgrade that includes all-new background wallpapers to help spruce things up on the screen. As well as adding some style to your chats there’s another advantage as WhatsApp has included a way to assign unique designs to individual chats.

This customized feature means you can have a different look for your most important chats and favorite people.

There’s no word on when everyone will get this upgrade with WhatsApp simply saying that it is rolling out across the world in the coming days.
