How to Use New WhatsApp Status Update Feature

WhatsApp recently drew out an update for its WhatsApp status with a new feature that seems to be indicating to a future in which the app moves away from text messages and make use of much more photos/videos – the update Of a temporary state. This new feature shows resemblance to the Snapchat app, and the update has added not only a new tab for the status menu at the top of the screen but also a switch in the center of the camera. It can be used to Update our status, a contact number or a group we added. It’s an attractive and comfortable change.
