WhatsApp has rolled out a new update which lets users add a colorful background to text status.The new functionality is similar to the one on Facebook, where a selection of background color options pops up when typing a new status update.
The background can be added to text status by tapping the 'pencil' icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, The Independent reported on Wednesday.
However, the update has not been rolled out to all users yet.
WhatsApp had recently restored the text status feature which was removed after the introduction of 'Status' similar to Facebook Stories.
The feature is designed to keep you on the app, which is beginning to resemble a full-blown social network, for longer, and to get more people actually using text statuses, one of WhatsApp's oldest but least useful features.
he updates doesn’t appear to be available for everyone yet, but you can find out if you have it by tapping the Status tab in WhatsApp.
