WhatsApp is planning to enable its users to message people on other platforms, aiming for interoperability. This effort, driven by EU regulations, will start with one-on-one messaging without including group chats or calls initially. Users will need to opt-in, and messages from other apps will be kept separate. WhatsApp aims to maintain high privacy standards and prefers third-party apps to use the Signal encryption protocol. The technical and privacy challenges mean it might take time for other apps to integrate, with the EU demanding interoperability within six months.
