New Delhi: WhatsApp users will soon be able to download a brand new update, and it will come with one big change that is set to cause controversy. The Facebook-owned chat app enjoyed record amounts of use at the start of the year, with a staggering 75billion messages sent on New Year’s Eve 2017.
The stats underline how many people use WhatsApp, and even more messages could have been sent if the service didn’t go down for two hours on NYE. At the start of the year WhatsApp users have also been teased about new features heading to the chat app, including a video call switch button.
It’s also been reported that WhatsApp could soon let Instagram users post stories directly into the chat app as a status. This would surely be a popular change, especially considering the backlash Snapchat has experienced with recent changes to its Snapchat Stories feature.
However, it’s been reported that WhatsApp is planning one change that looks set to cause controversy amongst its huge number of users. WABetaInfo claims to have got hold of the latest Terms of Service (ToS) for WhatsApp.
