WhatsApp is testing Facebook-like coloured text status feature

WhatsApp status updates

WhatsApp could soon get Facebook-like color text status feature. The popular messaging app is currently testing the feature that will allow users to write their status update with a colourful background. This development was first spotted by Android Police. 

The feature is available in WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.17.291. It is said that the feature is a server-side test and hence may not be available for all even if they are on the latest version of the app. A new floating pencil button is now added right above the camera icon in the Status tab. Users can click on the icon to upload coloured text status. You can add emojis, select font, and change background colour to design your coloured text status. After you are done, just click on the green arrow icon at the bottom right to post Status.
