WhatsApp will soon allow you to see statuses from the chat tray

WhatsApp statuses

The WhatsApp machinery is more than oiled. The new products they continue month by month and all of them are equally important. Among the latest releases we find the Communities or the possibility of sending files of up to 2GB or conducting group surveys. That is why the public betas available among users registered in the beta program are receiving all these news. Among them there is a novelty and it is the possibility of viewing WhatsApp statuses directly from the chat tray. A small change that could increase the use of the function among users.

See WhatsApp status from the chat tray, very soon

The information comes from the hand of the well-known web BetaInfo that are in charge of analyzing all the news of the WhatsApp betas for all devices. This time the novelty comes from the desktop app beta. The new feature allows users view WhatsApp status directly from the chat tray no need to click on the “States” tab.

These states came to the application a few years ago imitating Instagram stories, and previously Snapchat stories, which were so popular among users. However, they did not catch on as much as the WhatsApp team expected, but they are still available and their use is becoming more and more evident.

This novelty it will make access to the states possible by pressing on the profile picture of a certain user. If you press on the profile picture, we access the states. If you click on the box where we have your message and your name, we will access the chat. There are doubts as to whether with this WhatsApp wants to eliminate the States tab in the iOS and Android versions, thus leaving space for the Communities.

This feature is available in the WhatsApp Desktop beta but will be coming to mobile betas soon. Being a simple function, we do not expect it to take long to publish if the company considers it to be a good launch.
