WhatsApp new status feature:Add multiple slides,post, delete,edit and control who sees them 10

So Whatsapp has rolled out its new Status feature and is no longer a text status. It’s now similar to Snapchat and Instagram in nature with this feature. Now you can use an Image or video to express whats taking place with you which is a welcome addition. You can now take full advantage of this feature and post whats happening and it will remain for 24 hours before disappearing. You can also tell how many people have viewed your latest status as its pushed out to your contacts easily.

How to add Multiple slides to Whatsapp status?

Most users who are using the new status feature in Whatsapp do not realize that they can add multiple slides to their status. I see many people only adding a single image or a video and that’s it. What they don’t realize is that they can actually add multiple slides of up to four (4) pictures or more, add text or even a video mixed in. Surprised? well the reason it’s not obvious is that Whatsapp did not make the feature intuitive so most people missed it, they will probably update the implementation for the future.

To see how to add multiple pictures to your status watch the video below or simply :

1.Open Whatsapp and click on the status tab.

2.Look in the upper right for the circle with a + symbol, click it.

3.Slide through your picks and select one, additionally you can add text and so on.

4. Post the first slide and if you leave it as is then only one slide will show up or video.

5. Now here comes the not so obvious part go ahead and add additional pictures and instead of one they will play one after the other you can add 4,5 slides or so on.

Control who sees or receives your Status?

To control who sees your status

  1. From the main screen of the status page go ahead and hit the three dots stacked above each other in the upper right.
  2. You will see the options for Status privacy and settings, click Status privacy.
  3. From here go ahead and select either: My contacts except… which you can use to exclude those you don’t want to get the update.Alternatively you can use only share with.. option to choose those you only want to get the status.
  4. Bear in mind that this only takes effect before a new status is created. If you sent out a status before changing this setting then every one in your contacts will receive it. So change the setting then create the status if you want to limit who sees it.
