Messaging platform WhatsApp appears to be on a continuous trip to make some new additions to its services.
This new service did not come with any option, in effect, it was compulsory; sign up to the new terms or delete your account.
This sparked a lot of debates and concerns, especially about privacy.
This morning, users of the platform probably woke up to another surprising feature on the app; WhatsApp Status.
Four images with different stories and updates from the app show on every user’s status.
With this, many Ghanaians have already taken to Twitter to react.

I’m updating my WhatsApp status doesn’t mean I’m online to chat.🙏🙄— TOSSMAN🇳🇬🦅 (@Atose_Muhd) January 27, 2021
If we can all view WhatsApp Status without exchanging contacts. @WhatsApp should just make it possible for viewing others status once you save their contact. They don’t need to save your number before you can view their status. 😊 pic.twitter.com/CONT13nZiE— FLORENT JAY-B. (@FlorentJAYB) January 27, 2021
