Whats App has launched its new blockbuster update earlier than planned.
The popular messaging app, which has over a billion users worldwide, has rolled out its new Whats App Status feature to users across Android and i OS smartphones.
Whats App Status lets users send updates using photo and video content to their friends, much like Snapchat or Instagram’s Stories.
The new Status, which was originally set to launch on Friday but has apparently been unleashed early, will let Whats App users send short clips to their friends, which can be photos, videos or GIFs These can be further customised by adding emoji and text annotations, with a wide variety of colours available.
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.
