The Status feature of WhatsApp will soon have a bunch of new options, the company revealed today. All WhatsApp members should have access to the upgrades that allow all of these innovative features “in the following weeks,” which are now going out to users worldwide.
You may be wondering what is actually new. So, Whatsapp introduces the most cutting-edge and distinctive features for their users’ comfort and fulfillment. However, there are some incredible aspects of the functioning, too:
- Private Audience Selector
- Voice Status
- Status Reactions
- Status Profile Rings for New Updates
- Link Previews on Status
Initially, voicemails that you have left may now be shared and saved as status messages. They could last for approximately thirty seconds. In order to control who may see your status whenever you update it, you can then adjust your security settings by status. As expected, the default audience for your next status is taken from your most current audience choice, which is kept.
The capability to share audio status, redesigned status profile rings, link preview on status, and a more advanced security option are among the approximately five additional features and upgrades coming to WhatsApp status, based on a blog post by the company. Users will be able to choose who may access their status updates each time they update them by updating their security settings when submitting a status update using the new privacy option. The default contacts for the following status will be the ones you have chosen.
After introducing reactions in chats last year, WhatsApp supposedly had the most requests for the status responses function, which allows you to respond to status updates. By swiping up as well as clicking one of eight emojis, you may swiftly reply to any status. It goes without saying that you can always respond through text, voicemail, and stickers.
Whenever your contact posts a status update, a new status profile circle will appear around their profile picture. This ring will be displayed in the chat list, group member lists, as well as section contact details.
Other aspects are minor improvements to one’s quality of life. Links in status updates will also look better aesthetically. According to Meta, there will now be previews for the website or page to which the link will send you. By putting a ring around each user’s profile image in the chat lists, group member lists, as well as contact details screens, WhatsApp is attempting to make it obvious when users publish a status update.
Meanwhile, link previews are now available for status updates, exactly like they are for chats. As a result, when you publish a link on your status, a preview appears instantly, improving the appearance of your status and letting your contacts know what the link would be before they tap on it.
That was everything we would have to say about the innovative features added to the WhatsApp messaging customer. What are your thoughts on this? What do you think about the messaging platform now that new features have been added?
