Blocking updates are ones in which the Coreapp will suffer downtime while upgrading using the db-upgrade service. Non-blocking updates are ones in which the Coreapp should continue to run when upgrading using the db-upgrade service. You can only use the db-upgrade service to upgrade to a version >= 2.23.* from your current version.

Starting April 21, 2021, as part of API v2.33, businesses will have access to the In-Thread Context feature for ads that click to Whatsapp. With In-Thread Context, a consumer can easily reference the ad they tapped on, and a business can understand which messages come from which ads, making the first interaction more convenient, personal and efficient.
Initial tests have shown In-Thread Context to increase the number of conversations and reduce the cost per conversation.
In order to enable In-Thread Context, the business or Business Service provider that is hosting API v2.33 needs to update their inbound webhooks integration to read a new 'referral' property added to inbound messages by April 21.
After April 21, consumers will be able to send the In-Thread Context via message attachment, containing the header, body image and video related to the ad.
If the advertiser does not complete the above updates by April 21, they will not be able to receive the attachment, and will miss important context on what the customer is messaging about. The consumer will see the ad context, and will expect the business to as well.
Since February 1, 2021, we have been testing a new pricing model for the WhatsApp Business API that impacts businesses messaging users with a Mexico phone number.
To support this effort, some message webhooks notifications now include the new
pricing objects —only messages with status
read are impacted. For more information, see Message Status Notifications.
