After Instagram copied Snapchat’s ‘Snaps” feature to create ‘Stories’, it is now the time for Whatsapp to do the same. The new feature called ‘Status’ lets users share images with doodles and text captions.
Its public beta build has been made available to its Android and iOS clients, according to Mashable.
It also allows you to edit videos after they’ve been shot, specifically trimming them down, reports DigitalTrends. These creations are only visible for 24 hours, but there is no way to delete them once they’ve been shared.
The move comes less than two months after Facebook introduced Stories to Instagram.
Facebook offered to buy Snapchat in 2013 for $3 billion, but was turned down. Seems like, Facebook is now taking revenge by making the features of Snapchat available on its platforms.
