Whatsapp recently released a Snapchat-like Status feature, which raised a whole lot of controversies of its millions of users. According our sources, Whatsapp will restore the old status feature in their next update and it will be known as “Tagline”.
WhatsApp engineers are working on a tagline feature to replace the old status, this will be found on contacts info page tab as “Tagline” . Users can opt to use the Snapchat-like feature or just stick with their good old text-based status updates. The tagline feature is being tested on Windows phones before its final released.
Some iOS users still have the old status feature.
Users are not finding this new feature favorable to say the least. There has been a lot of backlash over these past few week all over the world and I’m guessing that Whatsapp owned by Zuckerberg’s Facebook Inc. are listening closely. Tagline, if true should be incorporated in the next major update. And also not every user wants to update their status with pictures and to make matters worse, go through process every 24 hours. Some of us are still old fashioned and we’d like our old text based status updates back.
