The popular messaging app, which has over a billion users worldwide, has rolled out its new Whats App Status feature to users across Android and i OS smartphones.
Whats App Status lets users send updates using photo and video content to their friends, much like Snapchat or Instagram’s Stories.
Much like Snapchat, the updates will disappear after 24 hours, with Whats App stressing that all are fully encrypted end-to-end.
Whats App says that the addition, launched in time to mark its 8th birthday, is a reaction to changes in how people are using the app.“When we noticed people were using the feature to communicate in real time, we redesigned Whats App as a messaging app,” Whats Appp CEO Jan Koum wrote.“This new and improved status feature will let you keep your friends who use Whats App easily updated in a fun and simple way." Previously, Whats App users were only able to set their own message as a status, or choose from a number of pre-set alternatives such as “At Work” or “Available”.
Download the app, create a profile, upload some fabulous pictures, write an equally impressive bio and voila.

Like Instagram and Snapchat, you can set up multiple updates, which will play one after the other, giving your contacts a full view of your day.Many speculated they fallen victim to a technical error, but You Tube replied to confirm that the users had been sanctioned for violating TOS item 4, Section H, which bans artificially inflating view counts.A senior label executive told the music industry trade magazine that since thousands of videos had in fact been migrated to Vevo, the views those clips accrued during their time on their dedicated label channels were taken away in You Tube's 'clean up'.“‘Gary (Nathan Lyon’s nickname) you are the best in all conditions.You are not a one trick pony’,” Wade’s comments were caught by the stump microphone.That is the term used when hackers artificially build up the numbers of views or likes on a You Tube video - enabling them to make clips appear far more popular than they really are and increase their exposure on the site.
