WhatsApp is testing a Snapchat Stories feature on its messaging app, according to Android Authority . The new feature can be found under the " Status " tab on WhatsApp , which can be located in the in between the "Chats" and " Calls " tabs.
Gearing up for the US Presidential Election on November 8, Google has announced plans to help you stay up to date on the minute-by-minute action. "In addition to " how to vote , ' Americans are actively searching for 'where to vote" - particularly in battleground states".
Okay, so it's not entirely like Snapchat's rolling photo-reel then, but it does have shades of the app within it. The test feature was spotted on Friday by BGR India which says Status sharing is only now available to registered public beta testers of WhatsApp who are using a rooted Android or iOS device.
The Status feature will allow the users to share their photos and videos with all the contacts or with selected people from the WhatsApp contacts list. As with Snapchat , there will be a time limit to how long the content is displayed: in this case, twenty-four hours. Once a Status is shared, it will appear in the Status tab and could not be manually deleted.
Only recently WhatsApp announced the roll-out of video calls, and now the company is gearing up for another smart feature already present in other social media apps. There doesn't appear to be any option to delete or limit the time period of these statuses as yet. Once a Status is shared, it will appear in the Status tab and could not be manually deleted.
He also informed that it was impossible to attack multiple people in one go, which is the case on Android while it was easier to attack only one outlet. We have not received any official word from Google on this matter as yet. It features a 5.5-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1,440x2,560 pixels (534 ppi pixel density), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, an Android 7.1 Nougat operating system, a 32/128 GB internal memory, and a 4 GB RAM.
