The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has released a statement regarding the unblocking of WhatsApp called in the UAE.
Users discovered the calling feature has become available on the popular communications application, and were tentative about how long the feature would be available in the UAE.
And it’s still unclear.
The TRA has blocked the feature previously for its failure to adhere to UAE’s telecoms laws
And remains the same rules.
The TRA statement says: “There is no change in the UAE’s Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Policy. TRA reconfirms that any applications or services of this type must comply with the applicable regulatory framework in the country.”
So it may be a short-lived enjoyment for residents.
