Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp on Thursday introduced a new status feature which allows users to share pictures and videos with their contacts by putting them as their status.
The WhatsApp's status feature is similar to Snapchat’s disappearing Stories feature. However, it seems that instead of pleasing users, the latest WhatsApp feature has annoyed many. Several Pakistanis took to Twitter to vent and question the use of the feature.
After Facebook and Instagram, now WhatsApp is copying Snapchat
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
Leave WhatsApp alone!
