- The company is trying to counter misinformation around its new policy.
Unlike last time that left WhatsApp users shocked by the way messaging app in a way forced people to accept the new changes with an in-app notification. This time WhatsApp wants to communicate the latest changes and is ready to offer its users time to read and then accept.
WhatsApp is already using Status, its most popular feature in the messaging app, to reach over two billion users. In a statement, the company said that it is using Status to communicate some of the major points like "WhatsApp can't read or listen to your personal conversations as they're end-to-end encrypted" or "One thing that isn't new is our commitment to your privacy."
One of the major concerns raised soon after the new policy was announced was whether WhatsApp could read or listen to personal conversations as they're end-to-end encrypted. The next major concern that many users talked about on various social media platforms, including Twitter, was whether WhatsApp keeps logs of who everyone is messaging and whether they share contact lists with Facebook.
