WhatsApp Status is probably one of the best features of the popular messaging application. Whatsapp Status allows you to share text, photo, video, and GIF updates that disappear after 24 hours.
In order to send and receive status updates to and from your contacts, you and your contacts must have each other’s phone numbers saved in your phones’ address books.
Same as Instagram and Snapchat, status in Whatsapp also allows you to share it with your contacts for 24 hours. You can also filter who can see your status by arranging it up on the settings.
And to view other’s status, just go to STATUS then tap the contact’s status update. You can also reply or react to status by tapping REPLY.
