In February of this year, WhatsApp was removed from the messenger text statuses and replaced them with new ones — with photos, videos, and animated images. However, in the new version of iOS client old feature came back.
With the release of the updates text statuses WhatsApp once again available to all iPhone users. Messages that are seen by other users when viewing someone else’s contacts, you can add via the profile settings.
“Our users write tha t they lack the ability to set a constant text updates on their profiles, so we integrated this feature in the Information section in the account settings, — said the developers. — Now the update will be displayed next to the profile name every time you view the contact — for example, when you create a new chat or view information about the group. At the same time, we continue to develop new statuses, giving people fun and exciting ways to share photos, videos and animated pictures.”
WhatsApp new status was not accepted by the users as warm, as was the case with Snapchat and other services, copied the function. Probably, it happened partly because the messenger is an innovation in its own tab, and not in a more visible place.
In addition to classic status in the profile of the WhatsApp update has brought the ability to play videos directly without waiting for it to load, enhanced support of 3D Touch and the function of improving the quality of the photo or video when shooting in low-light conditions.
