While many people were not okay with how the new feature removes the simplicity from WhatsApp, others complained about the removal of the contact tab and also text status.
Now WhatsApp has decided to fix one of these issues by re introducing the Text status feature. The feature which was added to the latest WhatsApp Version 2.17.95 is currently available to the beta users only and it works just like before.
This new change does not eliminate the video status option, which means you now have both the old text status and the new temporary video status. Since the feature is currently available to the beta testers only, most users might not see it yet until it’s pushed out to everyone.
HOW TO GET THIS NEW WHATSAPP
