WhatsApp status update feature started testing the last year, and is now officially adding it to the app. This will be available on Apple’s iOS, Android smartphones and Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform.
While some updates have focused around security and privacy, others have added new features to WhatsApp. The latest in that queue is now rolling out globally, and could perhaps be the most radical new feature added to the app in a long time. It is called Status, and this will allow users to share photos, animated GIFs or videos overlaid with text, scribbles, doodles and even emojis which would be visible to friends you share it with, for 24 hours, before disappearing automatically.
As a user, you’ll be able to watch the Whatsapp Status update posted by friends, reply to them privately and share your own posts.
