    Now all we do is talk about stories on WhatsApp and all topics related to them. There are many users who have not yet fully understood what stories are on WhatsApp, how they can take advantage of this feature and how it affects privacy. You must know that WhatsApp stories have done nothing but give a new life to the WhatsApp status, going in a certain way to imitate what is already happening on other social networks such as Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook e Facebook Messenger.



    WhatsApp has thus introduced a new tab - called state - which is used for sharing photos, videos and GIFs that disappear after 24 hours. The feature is available worldwide for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.

    Users can watch the updates of their friends' WhatsApp stories and respond privately, as well as being able to share images enriched with drawings and captions, thus obtaining unique creations.

    WhatsApp Stories and WhatsApp Status

    To clarify the concept even more, we reiterate that WhatsApp Stories and WhatsApp Status are now synonyms. The old WhatsApp Status no longer exists and has been replaced by this new way of sharing photos, videos and GIFs which will automatically disappear after 24 hours.

     

    So goodbye to the old "phrase" that each contact had or could set privately: now there are only WhatsApp Stories.
