The new Terms of Service are rolled out since 5 days, but something different is happening for specific users. Let’s discover the details below!

The latest news about the Terms of Service included that WhatsApp claimed (again) that the changes are about chatting with specific business accounts.
But… what happens to people that haven’t accepted the terms yet? They can still use WhatsApp to respond to calls and messages from notifications temporarily, but their WhatsApp account will be limited after some time.
Today, according to some reports, WhatsApp is announcing a new date for some users, probably living in specific countries like Germany and Argentina (it’s not confirmed yet but it’s really possible), where the government has suspended the updated Terms of Service: June 19th, 2021!
Within that date, some WhatsApp users on Android and iOS will have to accept the terms if they want to continue using WhatsApp without any limitation.
As you can see in this screenshot, they can still dismiss the alert now, but they will have to accept the terms if they don’t want to see their WhatsApp account limited.
