WhatsApp baked its own version of Snapchat growing its user audience by far from Snapchat. Now being the leading app in the world ever since its new feature release, “Status”. You might be aware that Facebook bought WhatsApp, two years ago. They say WhatsApp has a lead of 1 billion users around the world ever since the release of the stories app feature. The app lets users share videos and photos for 24 hours before its deleted. Snapchat and Facebook are said to be the biggest rivals and that Snapchat could be shut down because of the new features that have been introduced to both Facebook and WhatsApp.
WhatsApp started evolving introducing other media features to its app that other social network apps already had. Like Calling, Video Calls, Editing Pictures, Stickers, Gifs, Doodles and the Blue Ticks. The app continues to grow with new features being introduced thoroughly. Rankings says that the app is now visited more than Snapchat and Facebook ever since the new launch. Snapchat is widely used in several countries, and now that WhatsApp has a Snapchat feature that allows you to share short stories instead of updating your status.
It allows people to really see what you’re up to. You have an all in one package with WhatsApp now, it allows you to share GIFs on your status. All statuses are encrypted from end to end, meaning that when your content disappears, it’s gone for good! Like on other platforms, videos have to be 10 seconds long but on WhatsApp you have a 45-second-long video. The security of the app ensures you that all your updates are only shared with the people in your contact list.
To access this new feature there’s an icon between Calls and Chats on the home screen. Open it and capture a photo or video you would like to share scribble or doodle some things on the content, add emoji’s or sticks and add your caption as to what you would like to share. Share your media file and after 24 hours it will be long gone.
