WhatsApp clarified what is going to happen to users who do not comply with the new service rules and user data processing policy until May 15. You will still receive calls and alerts for several weeks if you cancel the new terms after May 15, but you will not be able to read or send messages from the program.
What will happen after that is not yet clear, but WhatsApp has a new policy for removing accounts that have been inactive for 120 days.
For accounts whose users do not comply with the new conditions, this rule is likely to apply. For years, WhatsApp has exchanged metadata with Facebook, and the only new information that the messenger can now send is payment and transaction information to support Facebook.
Back in January, after revealing that it would need users to agree to the new guidelines, WhatsApp sparked a strong response. Users, like Telegram, started to turn to other services. The revisions were originally expected to take effect on 8 February, but the deadline for implementation of the new rules was then delayed until 15 May.
A few days ago, the Telegram team accidentally launched and quickly pulled a major update to the messenger for iOS. Telegram now supports the transfer of history from WhatsApp and other messengers. The official release for Android and iOS of Telegram 7.4 has now taken place. The developers also boasted of another success in honour of the launch.
In January, 100 million new messenger users started using it. A very useful feature was the key advancement of Telegram 7.4: passing history from other messengers. You can transfer messages, images, videos and documents from other apps, such as WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk, to Telegram.
In both private talks and parties, this works. As mentioned by The Telegraph, Telegram messenger is already ranked second in the list of the most downloaded applications in the United States, becoming the second most downloaded app in the United States.
