Old 'Text Status' Will Be Coming Back To WhatsApp As 'Tagline'

WhatsAppp has been developing and testing the new Status feature since the last couple of months and has finally rolled out the feature to all. The newly introduced 'Status' feature replaced the old text statuses. This move has had made people angry and a large number of them have expressed their dismal on this at various social platforms, tagging the official WhatsApp accounts there. We have some good news for those of you who are not happy with the new 'Status' feature. Text statuses are about to make a comeback with a new name. Yeah, you read that right, text statuses are about to make a comeback on WhatsApp under the name of Tagline.

These images have been posted by the renowned Twitter handle of WABetaInfo. The above images depict the replaced name of Status with Tagline and as you can see in the Windows phone screenshot (first image), Tagline contains the much popular WhatsApp status -  'Hey there! I am using WhatsApp'. WABetaInfo have proven to be a reliable source of WhatsApp leaks in the past and in fact they were the first ones to leak out the news of the Status feature. The second screenshot shows the Tagline functionality being tested on WhatsApp's iOS application. It is thus clear that Tagline is already being tested out on the official applications of WhatsApp for both Windows and iOS.

Even though this feature hasn't been confirmed by WhatsApp yet, taking into account the reliability of WABetaInfo, we are fairly certain that Tagline will eventually be making it's way to WhatsApp in the near future. As the above screenshots show, we will thus be having Status for the stories functionality and Tagline for the text Status on WhatsApp. The user will also be able to configure the privacy settings of both the features individually.
