“We’re excited to add a set of new features to status on WhatsApp that make it easier to express yourself and connect with others,” the post reads.

The most recent WhatsApp status updates contain a “private audience selector” in addition to voice status, which enables users to simply select a privacy option for each status to control who can access their status updates.
