Zoom has also been reprimanded for a similar mistake
This is the second time Rajeev Chandrasekhar has warned a firm for using a wrong map of India. Earlier this week, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan was given a similar warning after he tweeted a video that incorrectly represented the Indian map. “You want to make sure you use the correct maps for the countries you want to do business in,” Chandrasekhar wrote in a tweet tagging the CEO of Zoom.
The tweet was later deleted by Yuan who wrote “I recently deleted a tweet in which many of you pointed out that there were problems with the map. Thanks for responding!!”.
Users will be able to report WhatsApp status
Meanwhile, the social messaging platform is reportedly working on a feature that will allow users to report status updates in the future. According to a report by WABetaInfo, a website that tracks new features of WhatsApp, the alleged feature will allow users to report status updates in a new menu in the status section. Reportedly, if a WhatsApp user posts a suspicious status update that violates the terms and conditions, users will have the option to report it to the team. This feature is currently being worked on and can be rolled out on WhatsApp Desktop Beta soon.
