WhatsApp introduced new status update functionalities in a blog post. However, some of the features on the list of recent upgrades for status updates are not entirely new.
The messaging app has ensured that these functionalities are protected by end-to-end encryption, just like all the other features.
This protects users’ privacy and enables them to safely and privately communicate updates with the individuals they choose.

Thanks to this functionality, users will have the option to select who they want to share their status updates. Because users can choose which users see their status updates, it gives the messaging app a more personalized feel.
Thanks to this feature, users can now exchange voice notes on the status that last up to 30 seconds. It was released alongside the WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 and WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 updates from TestFlight.
Similar to message reactions, this feature enables users to respond to a status. They can respond by using the heart-eye, tears-of-joy, open-mouth, clapping hands, party popper, and 100 points emojis.
Ringing For New Updates On The Status Profile
Users can check for status updates using this functionality directly within the chat list. With the release of the WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168, this feature was made more widely available.
Link Previews On Status
When users post a link as a status update, this feature enables them to share link previews.
According to WaBetaInfo, the app’s desktop, Android, and iOS versions all have these functionalities.
