How To Use The New WhatsApp Status Feature

Remember those one liners which you used to put as your WhatsApp status and then sit relieved for weeks without having to post another. Well, all of this might soon be history. You might have noticed a new ‘Status’ column in your WhatsApp apart from the other three columns. So what is this new WhatsApp Status feature and how to use it? You don’t need to worry about any of this now as we’re going to tell you all about this new WhatsApp status feature as well as how to use it.

The new WhatsApp Status feature is much like the Instagram or Snapchat Stories feature. It allows you to post a temporary Image, GIF or a Video as your status for 24 hours after which they are automatically removed. You can even choose who can watch your status and who can’t. The Status Update acts as a feed and every time one of your contact puts up a Status Update, you get notified. The fun part is that you can even reply to a Status Update.

So just follow these steps, if you wish to put up a WhatsApp Status Update.


STEP 1: Update your WhatsApp app to the latest version.

STEP 2: Open WhatsApp. You’ll now see four column headings on the top. Select ‘Status‘ from these column headings.
