WhatsApp is the only thing keeping me from downgrading to an old fashioned phone with 100x more battery life. I detest smartphones.

Facebook isnt nearly as popular as it once was so fingers crossed lots of people give this "ultimatum" the finger.

Been using Google messages for years. Hopefully RCS catches up and Android can have a real Imessage competitor.

An I bet loads of people will accept this but refuse the COVID vaccine because of the “microchip”.

Man, I wish I could drop WhatsApp. The sooner the better. But most of the people I talk with use that crap app…

By the way, note that this only applies to areas outside Facebook's European region (which includes the EU and UK and probably some others). For European users, nothing changes. We should still try to get rid of this stupid app, though.

Ok, this is where they cross the line. Thank God I got rid of Facebook ages ago. (MySpace was superior anyway).

What are some good alternatives to WhatsApp? Kinda sucks that everyone is using it and you're practically forced to keep it to stay in touch with the people.

Signal is a great alternative, for those of you who are looking to switch from WhatsApp to something else that isn't, you know, Kik.

I'm in the same boat. And to make things worse, I need to use it in my job...
