This year, WhatsApp announced that there will be some new updates for our Status. Like your personal chats and calls, your WhatsApp status is protected by end-to-end encryption so you can share privately and securely.

So what are the updates? Well, you can choose who gets to look at your status on WhatsApp. Called the Private Audience Selector, you can update your privacy settings per status so you can choose who views your status each time you update it. You can even set a Voice Status up to seconds to send a more personal update rather than typing.

Moving on, you will be able to do Status Reactions as a quick and easy way to respond to status updates from your friends and close contacts. The Status Profile Rings for new updates will be integrated too so that you will never miss a status from a loved one. Last but not least, you will also automatically see a visual preview of the link content when you post a link on your status.

These updates have started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more trending tech news at
