WhatsApp has the status update, if you didn’t know WhatsApp started out as a status app which tells you very well what we’re doing. Now it’s coming back or re-looking at the entire concept of status and it’s going to add a lot of firepower into this feature.
Let me tell you how, now you’ll be able to give your status as a video; as a photograph or an animated photograph right on the WhatsApp app. It won’t be visible to everybody; it’ll be only visible to people who are on your contact list and it’s going to stay only for about 24 hours. So, you will have a status tab on the updated WhatsApp app.
There you can see which of your friends have updated their status, you’ll be able to click on one; open it and see what the status is and then it’ll flow to the next status and the next status and so on. Over the period of time WhatsApp has realize, there are a lot of people not really updating their status as frequently as they can. So this is a way to sort of bring them back to do these updates.
There are some other interesting feature here as I said; it’s going to be visible only to people on your contact list so, it’s not like a broadcast; not everybody is going to able to see what your latest status is. So, if you don’t want your boss to see that you’re chilling out at the late-night party then you can just exclude him/her from the status message updates.
There is one more interesting feature and that’s happening in the world, and that’s happening in the WhatsApp app. From now on, you won’t actually have to click on a contact to get to the camera. The camera button is going to be visible right there on the WhatsApp on the left-hand corner on top and you don’t really need click on the contact to start using the camera. This is because WhatsApp has realized a lot of people are using the camera within the app to create videos and photographs.
