It also stated that users will have to agree to the new terms and policy by February 8, 2021, in order to continue using WhatsApp’s service. Later it took a U turn an is maintaining statusquo over the issue.
We have to see if Facebook will take a decision or will the central Government take a decision first. WhatsApp-Signal-Instagram are some of the platforms being used by the people from time to time.
