Whatsapp users! Get ready for new colorful status updates. WhatsApp will be soon launching the feature to update status with different fonts, colorful backgrounds and a combination of emojis. Currently, this feature is in beta version and is expected to arrive soon for all users. The upcoming feature was first spotted by Android Police website.
Facebook too had introduced colorful status feature last year on its Android app. Now the same has been spotted by Whatsapp as well. According to a report by Android Police, the feature is available in the WhatsApp Android beta version 2.17.291. The report, however, adds that it is also possible that some beta testers are not able to see the feature.
Some of the beta testers can notice a floating pen icon placed in the Status tab at the bottom of the screen. After clicking on the icon, they will get an option to type a status and select a particular font, background color and emoji. Once a user has written the status and made all the required changes, then he/she can click on the green arrow to send the test status. Once done, the status is then published. It can be viewed by all your contacts.
Around 250 million of daily active users are already enjoying the previous status feature more than they enjoy Snapchat.
You can also check the upcoming status feature by enrolling to the Android beta program and updating to the latest version. Alternatively, you can download the latest APK Mirror from here. And enjoy!
