I felt that there’s no need of stories feature in WhatsApp. This is because stories feature is not new, It’s already there in Instagram and snapchat. Yet they added this feature but the sad thing is they removed the most important feature text status. They shouldn’t have done this. Every WhatsApp user out there was disappointed due to the removal of WhatsApp status feature.

Seeing the huge disappointment and demand for WhatsApp status feature, WhatsApp has again added it in their beta version. Yeah! You heard right you can get this feature right now.


So, keep calm as in this post I’m gonna show you can get back the old text status feature in your WhatsApp right now.
Actually, it’s very simple. You just need to update your WhatsApp to the latest beta version. So for getting the beta version probably there are two methods.

1. Download the latest WhatsApp beta version from here. (Reputed source)
