Wahtsapp Update – Whatsapp Backed Text Status Feature
Users will be able to see Text Status in the ‘About’ section.
After the removal of the old status feature of WhatsApp, WhatsApp has decided to withdraw this feature after the constant experience of the user around the world about new features. The old Whatsapp text feature was first seen in the ‘About’ section of the Android Beta app, and now Whatsapp has officially confirmed its return.
After the removal of the old status feature, Facebook-owned instant messaging service, TechCrunch told that the old status feature will be brought back. However updating the Whatsapp Android Beta app to the latest version 2.17.95 now shows a status text message on the profile page. In addition, text messages will not disappear after 24 hours, like photos, video and gif in the new status tab. All Android WhatsApp users will get this feature back in the next week and it will be available soon for the iPhone user.
To view a status or to add a new status, the user will need to go to settings in the three-dot menu appearing in the right-hand corner at the top of the main screen on the WhatsApp app. After this, click on the profile picture and you can write any text message by clicking ‘Above and Phone Number’ as before. This feature is currently available for Android Beta users and is expected to be available to all users soon.

In a statement given to the website, the company said that we have heard from our user that they have disappointed because of not having a text-status feature in their profiles, hence the text status will now look like a profile name while viewing a contact. With this we will also continue the new state feature so that people can share photos, videos and gif images in a fun way with their friends and family.
You can see the status message of anyone by visiting the contact. At the same time, the new Whats Status Status Stories feature is not going anywhere and it will remain in a separate tab. You can add photos and videos that will disappear in 24 hours just like snapcat. Like Snapchat in this tab, you can also see new updates of all your contacts. However, there is no way to completely disable this feature of WhatsApp.
Facebook launched a feature similar to ‘Messenger Day’ in its messenger service. You can also post photos and videos through this feature which will disappear 24 hours later.
