The report comes courtesy of popular WhatsApp reporting publication WABetaInfo, which claims that WhatsApp will now allow users to chat with friends and family without accepting the updated Terms of Service. However, there’s one important thing to note here. The company says that if you want to message to business accounts that use cloud providers, you won’t be able to message them if you don’t accept the new terms.
According to the screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, the messaging service users will not be forced to accept the new privacy terms. The option to reject the new policy will be available, and WhatsApp’s functioning will not be restricted, unlike before. The change is visible in the latest beta versions of the WhatsApp app on iOS and Android. The publication says it will be available to all WhatsApp users soon.
