WhatsApp on Friday said it would delay the new policy launch to May from February, that the update was focused on allowing users to message with businesses, and that the update does not affect personal conversations, which will continue to have end-to-end encryption.

"While not everyone shops with a business on WhatsApp today, we think that more people will choose to do so in the future and it is important people are aware of these services," it said.
