With Whatsapp status you can keep in touch with your WhatsApp contacts. With photos or videos you give information about what you are doing by using Whatsapp Status. Your status remains visible for 24 hours and then disappears automatically. The function looks like Snapchat and Instagram Stories.
WhatsApp Status replaces the old states system. First, everyone could select a text or enter as a status. This was then visible in the contact list. This feature is now gone but comes back as possible.
To see all Whatsapp statuses at once, press Status next to the option chats. Here you can add a new status by tap my status. Here you can add or take a photo, image or video.
