WhatsApp updates statuses with Snapchat-inspired functionality
Messaging apps are not just about chatting these days. Every player that counts wants to bring something extra to the table to keep users hooked and attract new ones in the process. WhatsApp is no different, as it is now rolling out an updated status feature that lets users share more than just basic messages.
“We are excited to announce that, coinciding with WhatsApp’s eight birthday on February 24, we are reinventing the status feature”, says WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum. The update gives users the option to also share photos and videos.
