Signal App became the top free app on the PlayStore, and Telegram hit 500 million users worldwide. Tech entrepreneurs like Elon Musk of Tesla and Vijay Shekhar Sharma of Paytm also encouraged users to move to Signal.
“We’re now moving back the date on which people will be asked to review and accept the term.”
WhatsApp’s Twitter account also tweeted about this decision. The tweet read,
“Thank you to everyone who’s reached out. We’re still working to counter any confusion by communicating directly with @WhatsApp users. No one will have their account suspended or deleted on Feb 8 and we’ll be moving back our business plans until after May.”
