CALIFORNIA: Internet-based messaging app WhatsApp’s ‘Status’ feature was complimented well by its users and amassed around 175million daily users.

To make its Status version successful, WhatsApp is always busy in bringing some best updates. Now, WhatsApp is allowing the users to update their status with colourful, meme-like text posts instead of photos and videos.

The feature, which is currently being rolled out is a lot like Facebook’s colourful status update which came a few weeks ago.

Simply write snippet of text with a colourful background appearing and you can customize the font. You can also link out to other websites from within a text post much like what Snapchat recently introduced.

The feature is still in the rolling out phase meaning some users may not immediately receive the update.
