WhatsApp adds Snapchat-like feature: WhatsApp Status

Move over Snapchat and Instagram Stories, there is a new player in the “videos/pictures that explodes in 24 hours market” –  Whatsapp Status!

The WhatsApp Status feature is currently being rolled out and will allow users share photos, GIFs or videos overlaid with drawings, emojis and a caption that will be visible to selected or all friends in their contact list for 24 hours before disappearing.

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. – Whatsapp Blog
