How to use Whatsapp new feature – Status

Whatsapp has added a new feature “Status”. This feature is apparently added to improve the previous text based status with the new picture or a video message. What more, you can also add emoji, text in different color and also doodle on your status photo or the video. The Status feature is live on Android, iOS and Windows smartphones.

Point to note about the Status feature is that it remains valid for only 24 hours. That’s correct the new Status either photos or a video has an expiry of a day. It is auto deleted then-after.

Once your app is updated, you will see a Status tab on the top bar in android while in iOS it is present on the bottom left corner. Tap on the Status and you will see your status followed by the changed status of your contacts.
