WhatsApp Testing New Shortcut for Status Updates

WhatsApp is currently testing a new feature that will make it easier for users to share status updates. The new feature includes two new shortcuts that will allow beta users to quickly share images, videos, GIFs, and text as their statuses.

Currently, users have to tap one of the two floating action buttons at the bottom right of the Updates tab to post a status update. However, the latest beta release for Android indicates that WhatsApp is making changes to this process to provide a smoother experience for users.

The latest beta version ( reveals two new icons next to the Status header, which will serve as quick shortcuts for sharing various types of media as statuses. This means that the floating buttons will be removed, allowing users to conveniently share their content at the top of the screen.

However, not all users will have access to the redesigned status header just yet, as it is currently only available to beta testers. But wider rollout to beta testers is expected to happen soon, giving more users the opportunity to test out the new feature.

In addition to this update, WhatsApp is also working on improving the picture and video quality of status updates with an HD toggle for sharing high-resolution media. If these updates make it to a public release, WhatsApp could become the go-to messaging app for users looking for an improved status sharing experience.

Overall, these changes are part of WhatsApp’s efforts to enhance the user experience and provide more convenient ways for users to share their status updates with friends and family. Keep an eye out for these new features as they make their way to a wider audience in the near future.
