What exactly are WhatsApp Statements?
WhatsApp defines it as a safe new way to express your mood to your acquaintances :
Until now and since the beginning of WhatsApp, profile states were described by text, and at most they could include emojis. Now everything is different, using WhatsApp States you can publish images, GIFs or videos in your state. These will last up to 24 hours, after which they will disappear. You can also add different stickers to these GIFs, videos or images to customize them.
Enabling WhatsApp Status in iOS
This new feature of WhatsApp was until now only available in the Android beta. As of today it is available to everyone, although it is gradually being made available to everyone. To activate it simply update WhatsApp on your iPhone or wait for the new version to appear in the updates tab.
One trick to force the update and make this feature available earlier is to delete the application and reinstall it . Just remember to backup your iCloud conversations first, just in case. If not, it’s a matter of hours or a couple of days before you can enjoy the novelty.
