When the last Whatsapp update came around intorducingtheWhatsapp stories feature, many people were mad because while the Whatsapp stories wasn't a bad addition, it was brought in to replace the old favorite Text status.

Users immediately showed their displeasure, rating Whatsapp low on the playstore mostly because of the loss of the text status feature. The feedback has been so overwhelming that Whatsapp have been forced to bring the text feature back with the new update.

To get it all you have to do is 
download the update on your phone, open WhatsApp and tap on the Settings option, head to the “About and phone number” section and set a text status—just as you used to before. You can set a text-based status, or choose from default status options such as Available, Busy and Urgently call only.



With the new update both the Whatsapp stories and the old text based status can be used in tandem or a user can choose the one they prefer.





The re-addition of the basic status feature is now rolling out for the Android devices, and the app update can be downloaded from the Play Store. The same update will be available for Apple’s iPhones soon, though no specific date is available as yet.
