Will WhatsApp review your decision and unlock Telegram links?

Anyone who has had their WhatsApp automatically updated in recent days can no longer share links from one of their main competitors, Telegram. Is the world's largest messenger app afraid of competition?

Even the most ardent WhatsApp users already know that there are more resourceful alternatives, and the advantage of the giant messenger almost boils down to just being giant (with almost a billion active users). With the last silent update of WhatsApp, links to Telegram began to be blocked. Messages containing links still appear, but not as hyperlinks, and cannot be copied and pasted. Thus, to send Telegram links I must manually enter the URL in the browser.

The advantage of the giant messenger almost boils down, precisely, to be giant

<p>A Telegram representative confirmed to the website <em>The verge</em> It's blocking, and still treated it serenely: Usually, after media criticism, Facebook reviews its decisions and blames the automatic filter for the problem. We hope the same will happen this time.</p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

For the first time Facebook, the company that owns WhatsApp, blocks links. The most famous case was torrent sites on the Social Network. The measure of blocking competitors on WhatsApp only generates public criticism, and it is time to invest in new functions so that the messenger can retain its huge number of users, rather than trying to stop any such migrations.
