New WhatsApp Status feature rolled out; Now view Facebook like status from profile

WhatsApp has rolled out a new status feature that allows you to view the status of the profile, just like on Facebook.

Instant Messaging Meta App WhatsApp recently introduced some new features for iOS and one of them is a new status feature that allows users to view the status of the profile. The feature is already available on Facebook and now Meta is bringing it to the messaging platform. From now on you have to click on a separate Status section to see the same. However, after the new feature is rolled out, users will see the status symbol in the profile picture of others. It appears as a circle in green or blue color, just like it appears on Facebook or Instagram stories.

Furthermore, the app also brings a new status comment feature for iOS users that allows them to respond to a status by posting a comment, just like we comment on a story on Instagram. In addition, the latest update also brings the long-awaited undo the “uninstall for me” option.

That’s not all, WhatsApp has also rolled out Facebook’s Bitmoji-esque Avatars for select beta users. The feature is reportedly available in the latest beta update on Android – and the app is expected to offer this feature to the public soon.

Avatars first came to the Facebook News Feed and Messenger app and later it rolled out in 2020 in the comment section as well, followed by in Stories. According to WaBetaInfo’s report, WhatsApp is currently working on a feature called avatar profile picture that will allow users to set a personalized avatar as their profile picture. However, the feature is currently in development and will be released in a future update to WhatsApp for Android, iOS and Desktop.

The WhatsApp development tracker even shared some screenshots of the same showing how to customize and select an avatar, choose a background color and set an avatar as a profile picture.
