WhatsApp is officially rolling out the Snapchat-like ‘Status’ on all platforms

WhatsApp has announced in a blog post that the company is rolling out the new ‘status’ feature on multiple platforms. One thing to note is that BlackBerry and Nokia users (if any) will not get this latest update.

This feature takes almost the same approach that Snapchat and its ‘Snaps’ take, right from disappearing after 24 hours to the ability to doodle on the video or photo that we are adding to the status. You will see the update gradually roll out on your platform.
