WhatsApp has a feature called “Status” where you can share updates with your friends and family.
A WhatsApp status is similar to Instagram stories where they disappear after 24 hours.
You can update your privacy settings per status and share voice messages up to 30 seconds.
You can also respond to status updates from your contacts using status reactions.
