WhatsApp redesigning its Status tab
WhatsApp users will now be updated by the status tab, as well as the capability to search for newsletters by username as Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly redesigning its Status tab to include newsletters, for Android beta.
As per the latest report, the company is working on changing the Status tab by adding two different sections– status and newsletter.
Moreover, status updates will be displayed in a horizontal layout similar to Instagram Stories.
Users who create and subscribe to a newsletter will have their phone numbers hidden to prevent the disclosure of their identity.
