WhatsApp introduces New Feature like Snapchat and Instagram Stories

WhatsApp introduces New Feature like Snapchat and Instagram Stories

Whatsapp has unveiled a new version of its existing status update option called WhatsApp Status. The new feature lets users share photos and videos in a montage format for up to 24 hours before they disappear.

WhatsApp users can also send their status updates as messages to individual or multiple friends at once, much the way Snapchat’s messaging system is structured.   However, there is a privacy setting allowing users to control who sees the updates.
