WaBetaInfo is an online platform that keeps track of upcoming features and updates on WhatsApp. In its report, it says that “WhatsApp will officially announce that you can still use WhatsApp to chat with your friends and family without accepting the updated Terms of Service.”
Many back and forth in the past
What’s different now
Now, a new report suggests that WhatsApp users who do not accept the updated terms of service can continue to chat with friends and family. However, if they wish to send a message to a business account that uses cloud providers, they will have to accept the terms.
“We can finally announce that they will be optional with a future update but, if you want to send a message to business accounts that use cloud providers, you won’t be able to message them if you don’t accept the terms,” the WABetaInfo report says.
WaBetaInfo, in its report, states that the matter can be considered ‘closed’ as WhatsApp is planning to announce this change about the Terms of Service very soon. It is expected to release a new update on WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS that supports this change.
