WhatsApp will copy the stories of Snapchat

Facebook does not finish copying Snapchat. the Instagram application has modeled shamelessly stories of its competitor with "Instagram Stories". It was then around Messenger to be inspired by experimenting in October the "Messenger Day". That now that WhatsApp, which also belongs to Facebook, would test the same functionality as the site BGR India.

Facebook chose as temporary codename sober "Status". It is no obviously not display a single status, which was already possible on the rest WhatsApp. But reworked to share photos and videos with emoji, filters and comments with your contacts. But the content can not be removed afterwards, and you do not have your hand on the split time as a snap. They remain well fleeting, and disappear after 24 hours.

For now, only a handful of users has access to "Status". You need to have a jailbroken iPhone or declare tester application on Android and download the latest public beta version of the Play Store.

This new WhatsApp forced to rethink its interface. The meaning of the tabs has notably been reversed now with the first left display of "discussions" and "status" and "calls" to the right. But above all, there will now be a camera specific tab to view it in full screen mode. No need to open a specific conversation with contacts in order to send out data.

During the presentation of the latest quarterly financial results of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg revealed Stories Instagram has already 100 million active users. But he was also and especially stressed the importance of offering "the same experience occurred in the family of applications" of his group. The arrival of "Status" in Whatsapp is the logical continuation of this strategy announced.
