WhatsApp responds to India govt – But it’s still vague WhatsApp dark mode

After the Indian government talked tough to WhatsApp and told its unilateral changes (to privacy policy) were ‘unacceptable’, the social messaging platform has responded in generalist, even vague, terms that reiterate what it has been saying all along.  

“We wish to reinforce that this update does not expand our ability to share data with Facebook. Our aim is to provide transparency and new options available to engage with businesses so they can serve their customers and grow,” a WhatsApp spokesperson told the newspaper The Mint.
