WhatsApp CEO Quits Over Disagreements with Facebook

However, Facebook hasn't revealed when exactly group calling will drop in, simply stating that it'll be coming in the months ahead.

With that, Facebook has three apps (Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger) vying to be your weapon of choice for connecting with your contacts, and they're starting to feel somewhat similar.

San Francisco: In a jolt to Facebook, WhatsApp co-founder and CEO Jan Koum has made a decision to move on amid reports that he had a difference of opinion with parent company Facebook over data privacy, encryption and other issues.

If you care enough about your privacy to delete Facebook or even change the way you use the social network, think ditching WhatsApp as well. Koum obscured that motive in his note that says, "I'll still be cheering WhatsApp on - just from the outside", according to Tech Crunch. Well, since last October, we have been hearing about WhatsApp testing voice and video group calls, and now, on the first day of its F8 annual developer conference, WhatsApp parent Facebook has finally confirmed that group video calls are coming to WhatsApp. "Those values will always be at the heart of WhatsApp".

Rudolph was named the victor of the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and received second-team All-America honors. Ben Roethlisberger is about to enter his 15th National Football League season, all with the Pittsburgh Steelers .

But Koum also may have been embroiled in a rift with Facebook management over the parent company's voracious appetite for personal information and WhatsApp's dedication to user privacy, according to the Post report. So were regulators in Europe, where WhatsApp is most popular.

However, Facebook already harvests some data from WhatsApp. Facebook's enormous profits, meanwhile, are powered nearly entirely by advertising targeted to its users' interests. He said his piece through a Facebook post in which he stated his gratefulness to his team, and those who helped improving reliability on WhatsApp and making it a global app.

WhatsApp's other co-founder, Brian Acton, left the company a year ago and has since tweeted support for the #DeleteFacebookMovement last month. A source confirms that Koum had been considering leaving for a year.
