WhatsApp will soon have a Photo and Video Sharing Feature

Sep 25, 2023

WhatsApp text status is now back, but with a new twist!

WhatsApp will add a photo and video story sharing feature that is similar to Snapchat’s, Facebook’s, and Instagram’s story sharing. However, this photo and video sharing will have a separate button for WhatsApp’s text status. Your photo and video story will disappear within 24 hours, while your text status remains.

Once the updated version is already out in the market, follow these steps.

  • Update or download the latest version of WhatsApp
  • On the top left, click the three-dots to enter menu
  • Go to the settings
  • Select the old text status button

Who’s excited for the launch of WhatsApp’s latest update?
