WhatsApp Could Soon Bring Back Text Status Updates

WhatsApp ‘Tagline’ Update May Bring Back Old Status

WhatsApp had recently rolled out its new ‘Status’ feature that allowed users to put images, videos and GIFs as their status. However, the new update replaced the old text form of status with the new Stories-like format.

Now, WABetainfo, a user on twitter that often leaks features from beta versions of the chat apps has posted that WhatsApp is reportedly working to bring back the text status once again. He tweeted that the new feature called ‘Tagline’ has been added in WhatsApp beta for iOS and for Windows Phone 2.17.82, even though it is hidden for now. The feature is expected to make a comeback in the Android version too. With the leaked Tagline feature, just like before, users will be able to put up a message with text and emojis on their profile.

The new feature is rumoured to come along with a range of new privacy settings as well, which will allow the user to choose who can view their status, quite similar to that of the newly rolled out status feature.

It is now clear as to why WhatsApp had removed the old Status feature, as it had left many users surprised and disappointed. When will WhatsApp start rolling out the “Tagline” feature, remains a mystery as of now. But, based on the scenario, they may very soon release the feature, which could be a welcome addition for the users.

  1. Nice, the new Whatsapp update is quite cool, I won’t want them to scrap out that feature.

    Whatsapp is taking a hybrid form and that’s amazing.

    • No the new feature is garbage. If it isn’t broke don’t fix it. Trying to make yourself Snapchat-lite is not helping the brand.
