WhatsApp recently added 2 new features but it doesn’t look good.
1: You’ll no longer have the Status Tab: It has been rebranded to Updates
2: You can now join channels on WhatsApp just like you have on Telegram.
3: Your muted statuses will no longer appear at the bottom. You’ll need to tap on the three dots at the top right corner before you can see muted statuses.
This Update looks quite different for Iphone Users.
For Iphone Users, all your status update will appear in a horizontal format just like Instagram stories
Channels will then take up the rest of the screen
