What is particularly generating the buzz and fuse is about whatsapp scrapping off its previous “status” feature and replacing it with a new feature which works just as snapchat.

The new feature only allows whatsapp users to use a photo or a video with a caption as a status that details what truly they are up to and this photo or video status lasts for 24hrs after which it will automatically be deleted.

More like snapchat, right?

This means for those who keep the same Whatsapp status for a long time or months, will have to resort to the habit of updating their status every 24hrs coercively with a photo or video since just a plane “text” can’t be used no more as WhatsApp status.

Other features like seeing one’s WhatsApp contacts is also missing and below is some of what people are saying so far about the new update:
