WhatsApp Status Now Allows Sharing Photos and Videos

WhatsApp has announced Status for some days. This new Status feature in WhatsApp is quite similar to Instagram Stories and Snapchat, allowing you to share photos and videos on your status within the messaging app. However, there is something you should pay attention: all the photos and videos you share disappear after 24 hours. That means, if you don’t download and save the media files in time, you can’t get them after 24 hours.


Nevertheless, WhatsApp is still one of the most popular messaging apps, and this new Status feature will certainly increase its popularity. It has just improved the experience of WhatsApp, breaking the limitation of only textign for your status on WhatsApp. Instead, you are now able to share what you are doing with others via photos and videos. That’s a really cool feature.


In the meanwhile, WhatsApp also announced that the new Status feature would be end-to-end encrypted so you don’t have to worry about the security and privacy issues. The design of WhatsApp Status is similar to Instagram Stories, with showing lines at the top of the screen to show how many photos or videos are in the Status. Good news is that this feature is available on both Android and iOS.


Just as mentioned above, the phots and videos you share on WhatsApp Status will be gone after 24 hours, it is safe to do a WhatsApp backup and restore so you won’t lose the precious files you like and need. iTunes and iCloud are two nice ways to backup your WhatsApp messages and attachments on your iPhone. In addition, you can also transfer WhatsApp data from iPhone to the computer and store them there so you can always have the backup to restore back to your iDevice or even Android phone.


What if you haven’t backed up the WhatsApp photos and videos? You may have already delete those files from your iPhone; but there are times you want to use them again. So how can you get them back? If you are stuck on this awkward situation, cFone iOS Data Recovery may be your great helper.
