Last month, we updated our readers about a new Tracking feature in WhatsApp but those features are not showed up yet in this application. But this Facebook owned application was on something else and now released its new version with a new feature called “Status”. This feature is very much like Instagram and Snapchat Stories.
Know about Stories?
Let’s start discovering about Instagram and snapchat stories!
Snapchat introduced Stories feature back in 2014 and there is no doubt that this is a big hit and ever cool feature. Facebook tried to acquire Snapchat in 2013 but Snapchat refuses that $3 Billion acquisition offer. After that refusal, Facebook got an eye on this feature and then copied this feature to Instagram back in July 2016.
And now Company has introduced another way of sharing photos, videos and GIFs but only for 24 hours. Yes! Off course through this feature one can share photos and videos only for 24 hours and after this time shared items will be disappeared. Recent update of WhatsApp has given its users a shock because old status of users in which they have written inspiring quotes, lyrics and other lines are gone now. Now you can set status with new ways.
Users own written status of inspiring quotes, lyrics and other lines are gone now because old status is replaced by stories like feature “Status”.
This WhatsApp status feature is all clone of Snapchat. Users can share photos, videos and other media and that shared media will automatically will be disappeared after 24 hours. If we see on more improvements than we can see that WhatsApp has also got a Camera tab along with Chats tab. And also you can mute anyone’s status update by long tapping on that contact in status tab. Some of screenshots of new update are:
