Whatsapp keeps introducing new features every now and then.

Billions of users are active on WhatsApp every month, Whatsapp is the world’s biggest direct messaging platform. Whatsapp keeps introducing new features every now and then. On the 8th anniversary of WhatsApp in early February, Whatsapp came up with a new feature by the label of ‘Status’.


WhatsApp’s updated feature let users put up a Status in the form of an Image, GIF or a Video. These Statuses will last for only 24 hours and then it will disappear automatically.

If you want to catch the eyes of all your contacts or be the point of attraction then you have to post regular Status updates, a fresh one daily.

How does it work?

  • The ‘Chat’ section has been moved to the left and works just as before.
  • The ‘Calls’ section has been shifted to the extreme right.

In the ‘Status’ section in the middle, you will be able to see any updates being put by your contacts. If a person in your contact list adds up more than one Status update in a day, those statuses will appear sequentially under the same contact name. Look for the White bar on top.

  • To fastening the process between these statuses, you can easily tap the screen or swipe in any direction you want to toggle.
  • WhatsApp will display the next person’s Status upon swiping.
  • There is also an option of ‘Mute’ on the top right which will prevent any further Status by that contact to be shown in your ‘Status’ feed.
