Whatsapp put  the whole tech world in a complete chaos last week when it decided to replace it’s text only status to a feature known as stories. This was much similar to the stories in Snapchat and also Instagram which is apparently owned by Facebook which also owns WhatsApp. 
But WhatsApp seems to listen to its users, and it is clearly evident from the fact that it indeed brought back the much needed and the most desired old traditional status on the board.
 
Yes, you read that right, you can now go back to post your favorite quotes or lyrics as statuses and post a hidden message for a contact in your status. Even though WhatsApp has brought back the old status, the new stories feature is here to stay.

Though most people seem to hate it, it is rather a useful feature even though it’s a ripoff of Snapchat.
 
I mean you can still post all those cool stuff that’s happening in your life, and you don’t have to worry about it being misused because apparently, it is going to automatically disappear within a day.
 
You can witness the comeback of the much-loved status update in the latest beta version of WhatsApp, 2.17.95.
 
You can get it immediately by signing up for the beta program in the play store or by downloading the official apk from the WhatsApp website.
