WhatsApp is all set to roll out colourful status updates as in Facebook for its millions of users all around the world. It has adopted the feature from the tech giant to give its users a better experience by putting up story or status.
The aforementioned update will also allow WhatsApp users to add link in their status along with changing the background colour, font colour and font style. Reports claim that the upcoming feature will be same as in Facebook. It will change the current status option which only allowed users to put videos or photos as status previously.
The feature of status with coloured backgrounds was launched by Facebook with a little inspiration from Snapchat in December of 2016. It increased user engagement and forced WhatsApp to adopt it. Users of the instant messaging app can now add this colourful background status in their story which will stay for 24 hours. It is also available in Facebook Messenger and Instagram.
Social media giants have time and again adopted features from each other to accommodate the users’ interest. Although WhatsApp is owned by Facebook, it has to update itself day in and day out to remain in the fierce competition.
