More and more baby boomers are retiring only to find that their retirement income is not what they expected! Oh! With the economy in recession and competition for jobs so high, they cannot find supplemental employment when they need it. Perhaps one of the most important challenges for our communities is learning how to harness these active and healthy seniors to help those who may require minim...
WhatsApp Status, one of the best features that allows users to upload videos and images for their contacts to see, rather than simple text-based status communication, is live for everyone to enjoy now. This feature is available on Android, iOS, and Windows smartphones worldwide. The new WhatsApp Status, which is completely inspired by Snapchat Stories, was announced a few days ago by the company.
WhatsApp has now made the update. You will not need to be in the Google Store to be able to use this feature, because it is now active in the app. In the past, the state used to be something boring, text-based, which no one bothered to learn or value, although people all over the world have been known to update the state.
With the new feature, WhatsApp lets you control who can easily see your status update as well. In the WhatsApp tab, there is a personal privacy option directly at the top. You have three alternatives: “my contacts”, “contacts” and “your new status”. On Android, the Status Personal privacy option is definitely within the settings. Tap the three dots on the WhatsApp home page and you can see a Status Privacy option at the top. Again, you can select from the three options.
You can also reply to someone’s update. There is a reply key, so you can tap on any kind of photo, video, or maybe GIF. Now, when you tap reply, a WhatsApp thumbnail of the status update will be sent to your message. It has not yet been determined whether that message will also be deleted after 24 hours.
Under the personal status, you will see small circular heads of your friends with a blue circle around them. This green circle shows that they will also have a ‘status’ that you can examine. You will keep tapping on these locations for updates to get in touch with each other.
How to remove status
Although the status updates disappear after a day, you can delete yours from the beginning if you want.
On the status display screen, tap the three dots following the My update button, tap and then back to the update you need to delete, and hit the delete icon.
How to mute the status
You can also easily mute a status to prevent it from appearing near the top of the list on its own status screen.
Just tap and hold the update you want to stop and choose Mute once the option appears.
To be able to reactivate any status that you have muted, go to the Status screen, then scroll down to the Muted States field and touch and hold the update you prefer to reactivate.
