Federal Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication Syed Amin-ul-Haque said that the WhatsApp-like Pakistani application “Smart Office” would be launched by June this year.

As per the details, he said in a statement that all preliminary preparations have been completed in this regard.

The Minister said the Federal Cabinet has given the task to the Ministry of IT and Telecommunication to create an application for government officials and employees.

He added that the smart office application would be launched on a trial basis and the problems and obstacles, if any, would be removed.

Amin-ul-Haque further said that all data and conversations taking place in the application will be safe.

Amin-ul-Haque said another application of the same style will also be launched for other Pakistanis.

“WhatsApp should have taken opinion from users before updating its policy and no company is allowed to impose its decisions to its users through constraints.

The policy should be the same for global users. The new policy will not be effective in some countries including Europe, Brazil, and the United States,” he said.
