The messages for WhatsApp users who reject its new terms and conditions (updates) will be switched off and users will neither send nor receive the same.
WhatsApp pushed the deadline to May 15th after which the messages will be switched off completely. However, notifications and calls will still be operational for some few weeks.
The notification asked users to either agree with the new terms or delete their accounts. However, in what seemed like a miscalculation on the company’s part, many users decided to delete their accounts and move to competitors, Telegram and Signal.

The company had in January declared their intention to establish new terms and conditions in what they termed as a step to improve their services but were castigated by users who condemned them of planning to invade into people’s privacy by sharing personal data with Facebook.
In the meantime, WhatsApp last week tried to explain to its subscribers how and why the new updates would affect them, specifying that the same would majorly focus on business accounts.
