WhatsApp adopted status updates in 2017, a feature that has been improving over time. Today, we know that Meta is now making it even easier for users to check the stories and updates of their contacts.
Initially popularized by Snapchat through its Stories, WhatsApp has evolved to have a dedicated tab for status updates on the home screen. And I would say that it has gradually become almost as important as the messages themselves.
The improvement greatly facilitates the viewing of status updates
In the latest beta version (22.214.171.124) of WhatsApp, an eye-catching feature is in the process of being implemented. Previously, tapping the profile icon in a conversation acted as a back button, but now, users can use this same icon to access the stories and status updates of the contact.
This improvement, designed to streamline the user experience, is already available to some beta users and is expected to be extended to more in the coming days. The full implementation for all users, once WhatsApp completes the necessary testing, will make checking status updates faster and more convenient.
