WhatsApp is the most widely used instant messaging app in the world, with its user base being in the couple of billions. That means that a lot of people are using WhatsApp each day to communicate with their workplace, their friends or their families, and that’s simply amazing. If you’re a WhatsApp user, or if you just like to keep up with the pulse of the tech world, than you already know that WhatsApp has been acquired by Facebook a few years ago for a pretty hefty sum.
If you didn’t know this by now, then at least now you understand why WhatsApp seems to always get Facebook features after a while. Facebook just loves implementing all the same stuff to all the apps it owns, or so it seems. The first Facebook-like feature that WhatsApp also got was the Status one, similar to Stories on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. Although the feature was one blatantly copied from Snapchat, more and more apps are getting it today so I guess that’s just the trend.
About the Colored Text Status Feature
And now WhatsApp will get a brand new feature that Facebook has had for a while, namely colored text status. If you have a Facebook account (and who doesn’t nowadays?), then you’re already familiar with the colored text status feature. In order to make your status more fun on Facebook, you can choose different colored backgrounds and text for it. It seems that this will also be available on WhatsApp pretty soon.
So how will it work? Well, apparently if you go to WhatsApp’s Status section after the update, you will now have a new option besides photo and video, namely text. And this text will be fully customizable in the most colorful of ways. So if you’re a WhatsApp, prepare to add some color to your Status!
