How to use this new feature?
Eight years ago, in February 2009, when WhatsApp began to be developed, a feature was created that allowed users to tell their contacts what their status was at that moment.
At the beginning of the year WhatsApp renewed this functionality and now it is possible to share images and videos with your contacts in a simple and safe way.
To view the status of your contacts in the Web version, simply you have to select the three-ringed circle icon in the upper side.
Then our own status is presented and also the status of the person you selected.
According to the official information, status updates are encrypted end-to-end and disappear just after 24 hours. However, this new feature simply mimics Instagram Stories a bit. But, let’s see if it has many fans or not.
