WhatsApp new update for buisness purpose

Facebook-owned WhatsApp is updating itself in a new privacy policy and terms of service to reflect “optional experiences” for businesses. On Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg CEO of parent company Facebook announced this news in earnings.

Earlier WhatsApp has given the notification to users suggesting that they will be required to agree to the new terms and policy to continue using the messaging app post-February 8. But now WhatsApp had subsequently extended this deadline till May 15.

Zuckerberg said, “Many businesses need more than a phone to manage their customer service, so we’re building tools to let businesses store and manage their WhatsApp chats using our secure hosting infrastructure if they would like. We’re in the process of updating WhatsApp’s privacy policy and terms of service to reflect these optional experiences.”

The updated policy and terms first announced that all the users need to accept the policy within February 8, to run WhatsApp. In failing of doing so users might lose access to their accounts. But recently the company introduced new ways to message businesses via WhatsApp Business.

Zuckerberg said, "business messages will only be hosted on its infrastructure if a business chooses so." He added, “We want everyone to know the lengths we go to protect your private messages, so we’re moving the date of this update back to give everyone to understand what the update means”
