WhatsApp to bring back old Status, will call it Tagline

WhatsApp is reportedly bringing back the old Status feature that allowed users to set up a text message as their status in their users profiles.

The feature will be called Tagline. On Thursday, WhatsApp had rolled out a new feature called Status. This adds a tab to the app, similar to the Chat tab, where people can share their photos and videos. At the same time, the company removed the old "status" feature that was part of user profile.

While most people liked this since it gave real time updates to their contacts, many users on the hand, hated it and wanted the old status function back. Well, it looks like WhatsApp is listening to the users now and it is bringing back the old status function.

It is now clear why WhatsApp removed the old Status feature. The new Status works very differently and has a different purpose compared to the old one.

WhatsApp's new Status feature has so far divided users. Many see it as an unnecessary complication that will turn their chat into a social media app. Many other, meanwhile, like the feature but lament the loss of old Status feature and removal of Contacts tab from the main navigation bar.
