Attention WhatsApp users! Important changes from TODAY 2024-04-12 12:22:40

If you are a WhatsApp user, like millions of people around the world, you should be aware of these changes starting TODAY, Thursday, April 11. We tell you so that you are not surprised.

For days, multiple international media have been reporting on this event. Starting today, April 11, WhatsApp is renewed to comply with the new European Union regulations. Among the most anticipated new features is the possibility of chatting with users of other messaging platforms.

What does this mean? You will be able to communicate with your friends and family who use other apps, such as Telegram, Signal or iMessage, without having to leave WhatsApp. Interoperability will be limited to text messages, voice, images, videos and files in a first phase. Group calls and chats with users of other platforms will be integrated in the future.

In addition, all users who use the famous WhatsApp application from this Thursday, April 11, will have to accept new terms and conditions, and a series of other changes.

Also starting TODAY, the minimum age to use WhatsApp is reduced from 16 to 13 years old. This change is made to harmonize the regulations with the rest of the world.

Changes in WhatsApp from TODAY

Regarding the new minimum age, WhatsApp has not yet detailed how it will verify the age of users. They are expected to implement a verification system similar to that used by other online platforms, such as requesting a DNI or passport.

What else is coming out TODAY? From now on, chats with end-to-end encryption on WhatsApp will be identified with a small padlock. This new visual indicator lets you quickly and easily know that your conversations are protected.

What does end-to-end encryption mean? It is a technology that ensures that only you and the person you are chatting with can read the messages. Not even WhatsApp can access them. What do you think of the changes to the famous App?
