WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that will debut in a new tab called ‘Status’ that works in much the same way as Snapchat stories.
The feature was discovered in the most recent public beta version of WhatsApp for both iOS and Android. Users can post status updates, which disappear in 24 hours, in the form of photos and videos and share them with friends.
According to a report from BGR, the feature can be accessed on rooted/jailbroken devices running the most recent WhatsApp public beta.
It seems users can take a photo, record a video, or use an existing version of either one and share it as a status update. The user can doodle on the content and add text as optional features. Once shared, the image or video apparently is listed in the Status tab for browsing.
It is still unclear if and when the Facebook-owned company will launch the new feature in the ‘Status’ tab.
