WhatsApp Status is now available on the web

In fact, the latest update, which has been rolled out to WhatsApp today, was first introduced by Facebook on its mobile app allowing users write status update with a colourful background, font, and emoji combination. The status text that you can use now can be customized with specific fonts and background colors. Web users will not be able to update their own status via the interface but will be able to view other people's statuses. According to 9to5mac, you can now start making more colorful status updates on iOS and Android, but you can only view them on the web for now. The new text-based feature enables WhatsApp users to let their friends know about the location of an event or give them vacation recommendations. The new feature is available on iPhone and Android phones, though we are yet to spot the coloured-text background on our phones.

In addition to adding text, doodle, and emoticon, Whatsapp status update has the unique feature of captioning your update and cropping the image before it goes live. Facebook then tried to apply that to the Facebook app and also WhatsApp, although admittedly neither of these platforms are seeing the same success as Instagram. Once you tap reply, your message will be sent in a WhatsApp chat with a thumbnail of the Status update.




Whatsapp said, "The new feature makes it easy to share creative text-based status updates".

Interestingly, it is possible to change the privacy settings of the Status from the Settings of WhatsApp. You can select from the following three options: "my contacts, ' "contacts except" and 'only share with".
