WhatsApp borrows Facebook’s colourful status updates

WhatsApp StatusWhatsApp has officially started rolling out support for Facebook-like colourful status updates. The feature is now available on Android and iOS versions of the chat app. The web version will only allow you to see the status updates for now.

The users will be able to customise their text status updates with the font and background colour of their choice. They will also get the option to include links in the status updates.
