WhatsApp To Soon Allow Sharing Status Updates Directly To Facebook Stories
New Delhi: According to reports, WhatsApp has started testing Status update sharing to Facebook and Instagram stories without linking accounts. The instant messaging platform is also working to launch a feature which hides muted statuses completely.
The feature has been reportedly under development for some time now and the mobile messenger app seems to have finally made it available for testing in the latest beta update for Android users.
Users who have signed for the Google Play’s beta program for WhatsApp will only be able to find this feature in their app at the moment.
According to a report by ‘The Verve’ users will be seeing a new sharing option below their WhatsApp status through which users can post the status directly on their Facebook. It can also get shared with other social media platforms and apps such as Instagram, Gmail, Google Photos etc.
The users will not need to interlink their WhatsApp account with their Facebook profile. The beta update uses the data sharing API to share the status with Facebook as a story, something that is done by every other app these days.
Also, the muted status update section will get completely vanished and the user will no more see those WhatsApp statuses. The company is working on this feature currently and it can be available for testing very soon.
