Whats App says that the addition, launched in time to mark its 8th birthday, is a reaction to changes in how people are using the app.“When we noticed people were using the feature to communicate in real time, we redesigned Whats App as a messaging app,” Whats Appp CEO Jan Koum wrote.“This new and improved status feature will let you keep your friends who use Whats App easily updated in a fun and simple way." Previously, Whats App users were only able to set their own message as a status, or choose from a number of pre-set alternatives such as “At Work” or “Available”.
The launch comes days after Android users were finally able to enjoy hundreds of new Whats App emoji as part of another major update.
