A few weeks back when Whatsapp replaced its text status update with the Status stories feature, it disappointed many users. This new feature seems very similar to the popular feature of Snapchat where you can put stories on your profile.
Some people said that earlier when they used to have fights with their girlfriends or wives, they could emotionally blackmail their spouses by posting a sad emoji in their status updates. But later, after the replacement of the feature, they could not do the same. As a result, many people disliked the new feature.
If you also have similar kind of problems and if you dislike the new feature by Whatsapp, worry no more! Whatsapp probably heard its users voice, and now it has brought back the old status update feature. You can get this feature by downloading and installing Whatsapp’s latest beta version.(Also Read: New Phone Launched By HP Can Be Converted To Desktop; This Phone Is Not Just A Phone)
To do so, open Google Playstore, and type WhatsApp in the search bar. Now, go to WhatsApp’s app page in playstore by pressing it. Next, scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will see the words “become a beta tester.” Then you need to click on the ‘I’m in’ icon. After this, a dialogue box will open, and you have to select the ‘Join’ option. Done!
By doing this, you will be able to access the beta version of Whatsapp, which means you will have access to all of Whatsapp’s latest features. After waiting for around 10 minutes, go back to WhatsApp’s page on playstore. There you will notice the ‘update’ button. Below it you will see the line that says “You’re a beta tester for this app. Awesome!” Tap on the update button to update the app. After this, the app will start reinstalling itself. Once the app finishes reinstalling, tap the open button to see what changes you have in the beta version of this app. Now, you will see that the new status feature is still there, but when you open settings and go into your profile, there you will notice the old status feature.(Also Read: How To Create Strong Password Than You Can Remember Easily)
