WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will enable users to share their status updates to Facebook stories without leaving WhatsApp.
According to a report by WaBetaInfo, the feature is currently under development and will be available in a future update of the app.
The new feature will allow users to save time and effort in manually sharing their status updates as the status update will be shared as a Facebook Story without leaving WhatsApp.
However, the ability to share status updates to Facebook stories without leaving WhatsApp will be optional and disabled by default. Users can enable or disable the feature at any time from the status privacy settings.
In addition, WhatsApp is also working on the ability to create channels on WhatsApp, which will be a tool for broadcasting information and allowing users to easily receive useful updates from other people they want to get updates from.
The channels will be available as a separate and optional section within the Status tab called ‘Updates’. However, messages received within a channel won’t be end-to-end encrypted, unlike private messages shared on WhatsApp – both individual and group chats offer end-to-end encryption.
