ANI Reports confirm that WhatsApp will return its text- based status feature back , while the image based status feature remains intact.
The new WhatsApp update received a vehement response after the option of having a text as a status was replaced by a snapchat story like feature.
WhatsApp quoted- saying “We heard from our users that people missed the ability to set a persistent text-only update in their profile, so we have integrated this feature into the ‘About’ section in profile settings.”
