WhatsApp is working on a function to see status updates from the Chats tab

WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow you to read contacts’ status updates right from the Chats list, without having to go to the ‘Status’ tab.

This functionality would be comparable to that of Instagram, which is also owned by Meta, and allows users to access Stories from the direct messaging section.

WABetaInfo has now published a snapshot of a recent update from WhatsApp Desktop, in which it cautions that WhatsApp is working on integrating similar capability to the messaging app’s chats.

Contacts who have published a Status will have their profile picture enclosed by a green circle in the Chats section, and they will be able to view it straight from this tab.

Users who have shared multiple movies or photographs in their States will also see this circle around their profile picture broken into various portions, depending on how many posts they have made.

This feature is still in development, so beta testers haven’t seen it yet. It’s also unclear whether it could be implemented for the general population.
