WhatsApp, has reportedly released the ability to view status updates within the chat list to some beta testers.


This new feature is believed to have been rolled out with the WhatsApp beta for Android version, according to a recent report that surfaced. The instant messaging platform has released the WhatsApp beta for Android version to some beta testers. In the new beta version, WhatsApp has reportedly added the ability for users to view status updates from their contacts within the chat list.

The meta-owned messaging platform allows users to click on a contact’s display picture to directly view their status in their chat list. This feature is a lot more similar to Instagram’s tap and view story feature. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp beta for Android update has a feature that helps users recover their messages deleted by mistake. However, there is a catch with this feature.

WABetaInfo has shared a screenshot wherein users will see a snackbar when an attempt to delete a message for you is detected. In this case, WhatsApp users “will have a few seconds to recover the message if you previously wanted to delete it for everyone.”
