According to BGR.in WhatsApp is testing out a new feature called “Status“. Presently only public beta users are testing it and update might hit the market soon. So, what’s new about it, we can update status right now too.
Like Snapchat Snaps, Instagram’s Stories WhatsApp will have the ability to share photos with contacts with defined post life span (24 hours, remember Snapchat) and after that specific time shared photos / videos will automatically get deleted. You can set different effect, filters or add images and caption on status photo or video. You can select contacts with whom you want to share the status. This status updates will be automatically deleted after 24 hours. It will have a separate tab called “Status”.
Let us see how it turns out, looks fun to use. What do you think?
