From a text messaging app to a video calling app, Whatsapp has taken the world by a storm for sure. Now the text status updates feature. The status, just like the photos and videos will be visible for a time interval of 24 hours.
To recall, WhatsApp has begun testing PiP feature on Android platform since July this year, as iOS recent version also adheres the support this functionality. It is a fun feature, but most users still prefer the traditional text-only. One of the most talked about things has been the "WhatsApp for Business" feature which will let companies have verified accounts to chat with their customers. We will see this new update very soon on both Android and iOS, in a couple of months. This new feature is said to be a paid facility to generate some revenue. It will disappear after 24 hours; friends will be able to comment on the status which will come as a personal message to the user.
