WhatsApp rolled back text Status feature

WhatsApp text Status feature has made a comeback to Android. Users can update WhatsApp app to the stable Android v2.17.107 from Google Play Store to get the feature. To use the old Status feature, click on the three dots on top right in the WhatsApp app. Next, click Settings and click on the profile picture. The ability to add text to Status is present under the About and phone number tab. Users will see the last update that they posted before WhatsApp took down the feature. It can be changed to a new customised Status or the familiar Available, Busy, At work, Can’t talk, WhatsApp only etc from the list.

The feature is already live for Android users, and it is unclear when it will be rolled out for iOS. However, the update doesn’t mean WhatsApp is doing away with its disappearing Status feature. The Snapchat-styled WhatsApp Status that lets users upload videos and photos that disappear in 24 hours, is right where it was in the app.
Another minor change that the new WhatsApp version brings is the ‘Add attachment’ icon has shifted to the text box where users type message, from tab above. Plus, users can now rotate profile pictures to left, right, top and bottom.
