Enjoy it while it is still possible.23rd February, WhatsApp had rolled out a new feature called Status. This feature adds a tab to the app, similar to the Chat tab, where WhatsApp users can see status (photos/videos/GIFs) shared by their contacts. The back fall of this feature is that company removed the old text-based ‘status’ feature that was part of user’s profile. (adsbygoogle = window. adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Not everyone is a fan of the new Status feature, including me. So, if you also are someone who would rather go back to writing song lyrics or emotional quotes as Status on WhatsApp, here’s a way to get back to old WhatsApp status. Although WhatsApp has recently reported that they will be bringing back the old Status feature that allowed users to set up a text message as their Status. But now the feature will be called Tagline. Currently this feature is added in the WhatsApp Beta for iOS and Windows, but it’s hidden at this time. It might take some time to enable it for public. Till that time you can get back to Old WhatsApp Status on your android by following this tutorial.
