Whatsapp Added Like Status feature on Monday, the feature let you share videos, gift and photos with all your contacts at once, now no need to select one by one. And recent camera update WhatsApp added a feature in camera by which you can personalize media with text, drawing and emoji.
“What’s New in WhatsApp Like Status Feature” –
- Status updates disappear after 24 hours
- Share with your contacts what’s going on throughout your day
- Control who can see your updates in privacy settings
As reported by Geek sister site PCMag, the new function utilizes the recently redesigned in-app camera; users can personalize media with emoji, text, and drawings “in an easy and secure way,” WhatsApp co-creator Jan Koum wrote in a blog post.
“Yes, even your status updates are end-to-end encrypted,” he added.
WhatsApp in April turned on full end-to-end encryption via the Signal protocol developed by Open Whisper Systems, promising that every phone call, message, photo, video, file, and a voice message is safe from prying eyes (and ears).
“Encryption is one of the most important tools governments, companies, and individuals have to promote safety and security in the new digital age,” application co-founders Koum and Brian Acton said last year.
