The app claimed that the change is meant for business accounts
WhatsApp revealed what will happen if you don’t agree to its update
“For a short time, you'll be able to receive calls and notifications, but won't be able to read or send messages from the app,” the company wrote on the page. TechCrunch reports that the mentioning of “short time” by WhatsApp means a few weeks.
WhatsApp added that users will have the chance to accept the updates after May 15, and its policy related to inactive users will apply in that case. The policy for inactive users mentions that accounts are “generally deleted after 120 days of inactivity.”
