WhatsApp bringing back old Status, will call it Tagline

Facing backlash and user anger at the new changes in the app, WhatsApp
is reportedly bringing back the old Status feature that allowed users
to set up a text message as their status in their users profiles.
However, now the feature -- once it is back -- will be called Tagline.

On Thursday WhatsApp had rolled out a new feature called Status. This
adds a tab to the app, similar to the Chat tab, where people can share
their photos and videos. At the same time, company removed the old
"status" feature that was part of user profile.

A Twitter account -- Wabetainfo - that often leaks features from beta
versions of the chat apps tweeted that in WhatsApp beta for iOS and for Windows Phone 2.17.82 the Tagline feature has been
added, although for now it is hidden. In the Android version too, the
feature is expected to make a comeback.

WhatsApp's new Status feature has so far divided users. Many see it as
an unnecessary complication that will turn their chat into a social
media app. Many other, meanwhile, like the feature but lament the loss
of old Status feature and removal of Contacts tab from the main
navigation bar.

It is now clear why WhatsApp removed the old Status feature. The new
Status works very differently and has a different purpose compared to
the old one. The company could have easily kept both of them within
the app. While writing about the new Status update, here is what we
wrote yesterday.

Now, that status message is gone. But that is not the point. The point
is that this good old Status feature was used by WhatsApp users to
inform their contacts about something. Say for example, someone is on
holiday. He or she will put up a Status saying that "travelling, don't
call" and hope that the message reaches people. Two weeks later, after
back from holiday, the user would replace the status with something
else... This ability to tell your WhatsApp contacts what about your
"status" is now gone, replaced by the new WhatsApp Status feature,
which won't let you set a text message as a status and won't let you
keep the "status" for more than 24 hours.
