WhatsApp To Redesign Status Tab In The Upcoming Update

WhatsApp introduced the update tab last year for all users, including the channels feature. However, many users were unhappy with the design. This instant messaging app has always stayed in the limelight. According to some new reports, the company is testing a refreshed user interface. This new design of the status update tray might be available to Android users very soon.

As per a recent screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, this updated design will bear similarities to the Facebook story and status design. Moreover, this new update aims to enhance the functionality and accessibility of the status update feature. Through this, users will be able to see the updates as previews of thumbnails. It will eliminate the need for users to open them and give them a glimpse of the updates. Users can also decide which status to view.
