WhatsApp Status – A Major WhatsApp Update

Written by Axit Mehta

It was just eight years ago, in February 2009, when Team started writing the first lines of code for what would eventually become WhatsApp. The original idea behind the project was to build an application that lets your friends and other contacts know what you’re up to. This was months before they added messaging. The first version of WhatsApp looked like this:

Team is excited to announce that, coinciding with WhatsApp’s 8th birthday on February 24, they are reinventing the status feature. Starting today, they are rolling out an update to status, which allows you to share photos and videos with your friends and contacts on WhatsApp in an easy and secure way. Yes, even your status updates are end-to-end encrypted.

This is how New Whatsapp Status looks like:

WhatsApp Status looks promising, let’s see how it gives competition to Instagram & Snapchat.


What can you share in WhatsApp Status?

You can share a photo, a short video, a gif, also a colored text, even a stickers. Same as you have seen in Snapchat and Instagram.

How long WhatsApp Status will be their on your timeline?

WhatsApp Status stays for 24 hours on your timeline, until you delete it or change it.

WhatsApp Status is a feature that will allow the users to set their status in a far better way, and make them do it more than once a day with the addictive features it includes, just like how Snapchat does. Those who use Snapchat will be able to easily relate to this. These will be called Status updates, and what you can have as the Update is interesting.
