WhatsApp will return to the usual text statuses

17 March 2017
Not so long ago, in the messenger WhatsApp appeared a copy of "Stories" from Snapchat, called "Stats", replacing the old function of the same name. However, the innovation was not to everyone's liking. In the first days after the release of the corresponding update, the app stores for Android and iOS were flooded with angry comments with demands to return the old statuses. This time, the developers went along with the users and decided to restore such a popular feature.Recall that the new function of statuses publication allows you to share images and video clips, as well as to complement them with your drawings and all kinds of emoji. Posted materials are automatically deleted after 24 hours. Many users found this inconvenient and demanded to return the possibility of setting simple text statuses, which will be displayed next to their name for as long as needed. The usual statuses have already been found in the beta versions of the messenger for Android and Windows Phone. In the final versions of the applications they should appear within a week. At the same time, a clone of Stories from Snapchat will still be available in WhatsApp and, moreover, will be gradually improved and supplemented with new features.
