In the messenger app “WhatsApp”, status stories with pictures or videos have been posted for several months. With the new software update, users now have another way of keeping contacts up to date. Now text can be placed on a colored background and freely designed.

Another new feature is that direct links can be included in the writing. Overall, a status message can now be made even more creative. At the same time, it is also a return to the origins of “WhatsApp”, because the app was originally intended as a pure “status service”.

This is how it works:

1. Go to the upper middle tab “Status” in “WhatsApp”.

2. Click on the pencil icon in the lower right corner. It is placed directly above the camera icon.

3. Now you can choose text and emojis as well as the background color.
