Who here doesn’t know Whatsapp? I guess almost all of you here who have the smartphone have had their Whatsapp. Whatsapp is so popular among smartphone users because it is lite, simple and fast. Whatsapp has had many improvements during so many years in order to satisfy their users and now, in 2017, they also add a feature like Snapchat. After Instagram follows the Snapchat’s feature via Instagram Stories, now WhatsApp also follows the trend by adding the similar feature named as ‘Status’.
WhatsApp Status is a new feature that enable the users to update their status by uploading the photos or videos as like in Instagram Stories. The difference is, Whatsapp status which is made on photos and videos will still use an encryption system which is so safe for all users.
Based on the plan, this feature will soon come to all mobile devices such as iOS, Android, and Windows Phone operating system. Before that, WhatsApp has tested this feature in their Beta version on November. With the feature of WhatsApp Status, the users can see the photos or videos of their friends and they also can send the message. The user also can give some decorations/accessories on their uploaded videos or photos with scratch or text, once again, the same with Instagram Stories and Snapchat.
WhatsApp Status feature will replace the old style via the update on the status. “This original idea comes from the project to develop the app which make your friends and other contacts know about what you are doing right now,” said the WhatsApp CEO, Jan Koum, confirmed by TechCrunch.
Today, the WhatsApp users have reached 1,2 billion users each month, with the amount of sent messages is about 60 billion each day, including 3,3 billion photos, 760 million videos, and 80 million GIF million.
Di US alone, WhatsApp is one of the most used chatting apps instea of Line and BlackBerry Messenger (which has been slowly left out by all users).
Previously, Instagram Stories feature had also come and all Instagram users very liked that feature to update their daily activities on that app such as sharing the photos or short videos.
