Just a few weeks ago Whatsapp replaced its text-based status feature with a Snapchat clone, allowing you to post images or videos as a status (same way you can with Snapchat), which also disappears 24 hours later. Now, after many disappointed users went on a rage stating they want the old text-based status feature back, Whatsapp decided to re-add the feature through the About section of the app, reports from TechCrunch states.

According to Whatsapp, the new About Status will appear next to profile names anytime you view contacts.

This “new” feature should be rolling out to Android users in the next week and “soon” to iOS users.
