WhatsApp Is developing another feature to improve Condition Updates that may be published in future beta updates. According to a WABetaInfo report, the company is creating a new feature to see status updates in the chat list that will be released at a later date.
The meta-owned messaging platform is also working on a quick response to status updates that will be introduced in future updates. Instagram users will be aware of how to see status updates in their personal chat list. The report says that the same feature is also coming for WhatsApp. This feature is still under development and has only been rolled out to beta testers
Previously, a newly published status update was only visible to users in the status section. However, with this update, users will be able to see the status in the chat list or when searching for chats and messages. Whenever a user clicks on a chat cell, WhatsApp opens the conversation with the contact.
However, with this upcoming Instagram-like feature, when a contact recently released a status update, users can click on the profile picture to see the update. The report suggests that once the feature is released, more people will start seeing status updates published by their contacts.
The report further states that the upcoming update information comes from the future build of the WhatsApp desktop and will be available in future updates of the WhatsApp beta for both. Android And iOS. However, the company has not confirmed the release date of the upcoming feature.
