Lately, WhatsApp copy the Snapchat Stories feature and replace it with the old text statuses. But it didn’t get positive response from the users, so now they are bringing back the old status style but this time in a slightly different way.
” We heard from our users that people missed the ability to set a persistent text-only update in their profile, so we’ve integrated this feature into the ‘About’ section in profile settings. Now, the update will appear next to profile names anytime you view contacts, such as when creating a new chat or looking at Group info. At the same time, we’re continuing to build on the new Status feature that gives people fun and engaging ways to share photos, videos and GIFs with their friends and family throughout their day. “
According to report from TechChrunch, WhatsApp will soon roll out the feature to both Android and iOS platforms. There’s no specific mention of Windows Phone, but it’s came to hear that the text statuses has spotted in the beta version of the app.
