Soon WhatsApp Web will incorporate the functionality of Status , something that until now was only available in versions for mobile phones. This new feature will reach both the desktop version that we can download and install, as well as the one that can be accessed through any modern browser.
Logically, once both versions of WhatsApp are updated we can check the status of all our contacts, as well as update ours. For them we will have the possibility of using photos, videos and GIFs stored in our computer, but also the webcam if we have one to take a photograph or video at that very moment.
This novelty has been detected in a previous version of WhatsApp Web, and is in tests, without the users can use it for the moment. Of course, we know that this functionality will soon arrive .
To access this section we will have a new button in the application , which upon entering will replace the left side of the chats by the status of our contact. On the right side will be the options to upload a compatible file and set it as our status, or activate the webcam for it.
Our visits to the states of our contacts will also be recorded, as long as this option is active in the privacy options. And if we want, we can answer from WhatsApp Web as it is possible to do it from WhatsApp mobile applications.
Although we know WhatsApp Web will add the Status in the next update (and will change the location of the corresponding button so that it is not hidden as it is now), more changes to date may be included.
