The contentious policy whose rollout date was pushed to May 15 from February 8 however, remains unchanged. In a blog post on Friday, WhatsApp said it will display a banner in the app in the coming weeks “providing more information that people can read at their own pace”.
“We’ve also included more information to try and address concerns we’re hearing. Eventually, we’ll start reminding people to review and accept these updates to keep using WhatsApp,” the Facebook-owned company said. WhatsApp, in an e-mailed response, said the new in-app notification looks different from the one users saw in January and that has been redesigned based on feedback from users.
