WhatsAppis by all means waxing stronger by the day as one of the largest Instant messenger app in the world.
Just like Instagram introduced the ‘feature stories’ copied from
snapchat , today whatsapp has announced a new feature that lets you express yourself using a short video,
a feature inspired by snapchat.
The new feature “WhatsApp Status” will allow you to share photos, videos, and GIFs as your status(i.e. stories) which will auto-destruct in 24 hours. The feature was tested in November last year, and was available for beta testers last week.
You will have the ability to control who sees your statuses. It has already started in the Netherlands and France, the feature is expected to start rolling out for both iOS and Android today with other markets to follow.
This is a really smart addition to WhatsApp helping you to alleviate boring status update all the time.
