Read on to find out what WhatsApp has to say!
As per a statement issued by the company, “We will not limit functionality of how WhatsApp works in the coming weeks. Instead, we will continue to remind users from time to time about the update… we will maintain this approach until at least the forthcoming PDP law comes into effect.”
Notices had been issued by the CCI, or Competition Commission of India, to ask for more information about the policy. In an earlier hearing the court had refused to stay the CCI notices
WhatsApp had rebutted that the notices “smacked of overreach” as the information it was seeking was already pending before a different bench of the same court.
WhatsApp had previously stated that users who don’t accept the new policy of WhatsApp will not lose their accounts. However, they will lose their access to some important features if they don’t accept the new policy.
