The key updates include:
- Changes in how WhatsApp processes user data
- How businesses can use Facebook-hosted services to store and manage their WhatsApp chats
- How WhatsApp partners with Facebook to offer integrations across ‘Facebook Company Products’
WhatsApp has also updated its privacy policies on its website and shared details on how the changes work.
“WhatsApp must receive or collect some information to operate, provide, improve, understand, customise, support, and market our services, including when you install, access, or use our services. The types of information we receive and collect depend on how you use our services,” the Facebook-owned platform stated.
