The news was already discussed in the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, where WhatsApp has started to develop the feature. The update helped us understand that WhatsApp is planning to redesign the interface that informs who you’re sending the media to.
After some days, thanks to the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we have discovered that WhatsApp was planning that redesign because they want to allow choosing new recipients before sending your media in a future update.
New changes will also implement the possibility to upload the media to your status update, even if you are sending the image, video, GIF to a WhatsApp chat:

As you can see in the screenshot above, when you are sending the media in a WhatsApp chat, you can also choose different recipients, including Status. Note that this is already possible when you take a photo from the Camera tab but, thanks to the redesigned interface, it will be possible to choose different recipients right within a WhatsApp chat as well.
Even if the screenshot was taken from WhatsApp beta for Android, the same revamped interface will be added in a future update of WhatsApp beta for iOS as well, including the ability to choose different recipients.
There may be a specific reason why WhatsApp is developing this feature, but we prefer to wait for the next updates to announce it, in order to have a screenshot for you.
Note that this feature is under development and information about the release date is not available, but we will inform you when there is news.
