The status is an excellent feature of WhatsApp. WA lets you post video or image status, but it doesn’t let you download the status of other users. The status can be a message to a person you like or hate, an image of a new car or bike you’ve bought recently, a photo or video of a trip, etc. WhatsApp lets you set a GIF or a JPG/PNG format file as your status message. Most of us would look for status pictures on Google, Bing, etc. As billions of users use search engines, most of the photos you’ll find with them might have already have been shared by someone. To find cool or unique statuses or create a new one, use one of the applications I’ve shared below.
