WhatsApp has improved various Status features for both Android and iOS devices. “Status is a popular way to communicate brief updates with friends and close contacts,” according to WhatsApp.
As a result, the most recent version was released to allow users to simply express themselves and interact with others.
Some of the most recent feature upgrades touched Private Audience Selector, Voice Status, Reactions, and so on.

We’ll go through some of the features and what they do below.
1. Private Audience Selector.
Every status you share may not always be right for all of your contacts. We’re providing you with the flexibility to update your privacy settings per status so you can choose who views your status each time you update it. Your most recent audience selection will be saved and used as the default for your next status.
2. Voice Status.
We’re introducing the ability to record and share voice messages for up to 30 seconds on WhatsApp status. Voice status can be used for sending more personal updates, especially if you feel more comfortable expressing yourself by talking rather than typing.
3. Status Reactions.
We’re adding status reactions to provide a quick and easy way to respond to status updates from your friends and close contacts. This was the #1 feature users wanted, following the launch of Reactions last year. You can now quickly reply to any status by swiping up and tapping on one of eight emojis. You can of course still reply to a status with text, voice messages, stickers, and more.
4. Status Profile Rings for New Updates.
With the new status profile ring, you’ll never miss a status from a loved one. This ring will be present around your contact’s profile picture whenever they share a status update. It will be visible in the chat lists, group participant lists, and contact info.
5. Link Previews on Status.
Now when you post a link on your status, you’ll automatically see a visual preview of the link content, just like when you send a message. Visual previews make your statuses look better, and also give your contacts a better idea of what the link is before they click.
WhatsApp has already begun rolling out this update to users all over the world. Update your app to use it.
