WhatsApp has introduced a new feature which will let the users write their status update with a colourful background, font, and emoji combination instead of posting a photo or video as their status. WhatsApp will be adding this feature to all users on both Android and iPhone.
To use the new feature, WhatsApp users will have to update the app on their phone to the latest version. After updations, a new pen icon would appear next to the camera icon in the new Status bar for iPhone users and for Android, it would appear at the bottom of the Status tab which will let users type a status, choose a font, emoji, and the background colour as well.
This feature will not be supported on Windows Phone and on Web one can only view these text statuses for now, and not create them. iPhone app will also support more stickers and bring an enhanced chat search feature as well. But The stickers will be disabled for now.
