There are new features to experience WhatsApp Status in 2023

WhatsApp has just announced that Status is getting a set of new features that make it easier to express yourself and connect with others. The new features are Private Audience Selector, Voice Status, Status Reactions, Status Profile Rings for New Updates and Link Previews on Status. So, let’s learn more about the new features at below.

Private Audience Selector

Every status you share may not always be right for all of your contacts. The company is providing you with the flexibility to update your privacy settings per status so you can choose who views your status each time you update it. Your most recent audience selection will be saved and used as the default for your next status.

Voice Status

WhatsApp is introducing the ability to record and share voice messages up to 30 seconds on WhatsApp status. Voice status can be used for sending more personal updates, especially if you feel more comfortable expressing yourself by talking rather than typing.

Status Reactions

The company is adding status reactions to provide a quick and easy way to respond to status updates from your friends and close contacts. This was the #1 feature users wanted, following the launch of Reactions last year. You can now quickly reply to any status by swiping up and tapping on one of eight emojis. You can of course still reply to a status with text, voice message, stickers and more.

Status Profile Rings for New Updates

With the new status profile ring you’ll never miss a status from a loved one. This ring will be present around your contact’s profile picture whenever they share a status update. It will be visible in the chat lists, group participant lists, and contact info.

Link Previews on Status

Now when you post a link on your status, you’ll automatically see a visual preview of the link content, just like when you send a message. Visual previews make your statuses look better, and also give your contacts a better idea of what the link is before they click.

For now, WhatsApp has confirmed that these updates have started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
