WhatsApp is ready to celebrate it’s 8th birthday and that too in style! The app has announced a game-changing update. The app, on Monday, rolled out a new feature called ‘Status’, a new tab for sharing photos, videos, and GIF’s that will disappear after 24 hours.
We are excited to announce that, coinciding with WhatsApp’s 8th birthday on February 24, we are reinventing the status feature. Starting today, we are rolling out an update to status, which allows you to share photos and videos with your friends and contacts on WhatsApp in an easy and secure way. Yes, even your status updates are end-to-end encrypted”, said Jan Koum, the CEO and co-founder of WhatsApp in the chat messenger’s blog.
