Also, WhatsApp said in a statement that, “When you contact a business by phone, email or WhatsApp, you can see what you are saying and use that information for your own marketing purposes, which may include advertisements”. The Company also said that “Messaging with business is different from messaging with your family or friends.
We’re continuing to remind those who haven’t had the chance to do so to review and accept, after giving everyone time to review. It also said that after a period of several weeks, the reminder people receive will eventually become persistent.
When you receive the persistent reminder on your WhatsApp at that time, you’ll encounter limited functionality on WhatsApp until you accept the updates. One of the important things is that this will not happen to all users simultaneously.
You won’t be able to access your chat list, but you can still answer the incoming phone and video calls. If you have notification enabled, you can tap on them to read or respond to a message or call back a missed phone or video call. After a few weeks of limited functionality, you won’t be able to receive incoming calls or notifications and WhatsApp will stop sending messages and calls to your phone, WhatsApp said.
