SHARE STATUS UPDATES
Thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199 update available on the TestFlight app, we discovered that WhatsApp is working on a new feature regarding status updates. In particular, WhatsApp is developing an option that will allow users to share their status updates to Facebook stories without leaving WhatsApp. Previously, it was already possible to share status updates to Facebook stories, but users had to take the extra step of manually sharing the update each time they posted something new. Thanks to this new feature under development, the process may be automatic for certain status updates you choose, when the option is enabled:
As you can see in this screenshot, the new feature will improve the way a status update is shared to Facebook Story. It is important to note that users will always be in control over their status updates as they can decide which status updates are always shared. In addition, this option will be optional and disabled by default. If users want certain status updates to be shared to Facebook stories without leaving WhatsApp, they will be able to enable this option right within status privacy settings. If users decide they no longer want to share their status updates on Facebook stories, they can disable the option at any time.
This feature will allow users to save time and effort in manually sharing their status updates as the status update will be shared as a Facebook Story without leaving WhatsApp. It will also allow users to easily share their updates with a wider audience, as Facebook stories have a large user base. In our opinion, there may be another option to allow users to share their status updates to Instagram Stories as well, in the future.
The ability to share your status updates to Facebook Stories without leaving WhatsApp is under development and it will be available in a future update of the app. We’re going to post another article on this website when the feature is released in a future update.
