Move Over Instagram, Whatsapp's new feature Is the Only Thing you're going to Need Going Forward | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

I updated my Whatsapp a week ago or so and i got a bunch of new emojis and that was fine, they were actually kind of cute. So you can imagine my surprise when i realized that there was yet another one.

So i wondered, what the heck? What was so new that they wanted to introduce that couldn't wait a couple of months?

Well, i found out soon enough.

It was the status feature and it looks something like this 

Basically just like Instagram stories, you are able to upload status updates which can either be video, photo or gif which basically just shows what you're doing or whatever you want to showcase.

The statuses are just like in Instagram stories where's there's the little bar at the top that steadily goes on indicating the time passed.

It is longer than Instagram stories as you can put up videos that are over 10 seconds long, so you can imagine the applications for that.

This works with your contacts and you can choose who gets to see your status and so on. You can also comment on the status of other people and all that goodness.

As for how to get this...simple, just update your WhatsApp. if it doesn't come automatically, don't fret, just open up your Google Playstore. Check in the 'My Apps' tab, chek out the list of apps that require an update your Whatsapp is bound to be there, Update!

That's it.

Now sit back and enjoy your new Whatsapp feature. it'll be interesting to see how people react to this with Instagram and all.
