of the largest Instant messenger app in the world. Just like Instagram
introduced the ‘feature stories’ copied from snapchat, today whatsapp has announced
a new feature that let you express yourself using a short video,
GIFs as your status(i.e. stories) which will auto-destruct in 24 hours. The
feature was tested in November last year, and was pushed to beta testers last
You will have the ability to control who sees your statuses. Starting with Netherlands and France, the feature will start rolling out for both
iOS and Android today with other markets to follow.
I must say this is a really smart addition to WhatsApp helping you to
alleviate boring status update all the time.
