The free messaging app has been rumored to be working on releasing a new feature entitles: WhatsApp for Business. This means that if the user wants to send a text message to another person during video calling, then through this feature he will be able to do this easily. Now the text status updates feature. As over 1.3 billion monthly users worldwide, WhatsApp has tried to make its messaging domain more attractive and feature packed.

In its latest update, popular messenger app WhatsApp has rolled out two new features to both Android and iOS users for its stable or public build. One of them is the Picture-in-Picture video calling feature and the second one is the text status update. But now users can type their favourite quotes with their font choice on a bright background. Just tap the back button and the video call screen will be seen at the bottom of the display just like the original YouTube application. However, the new version of WhatsApp lets users choose even the background color and add the text at the same time. However, Android users will still have to wait as the feature has been made available only on Android 8.0 Oreo devices.

The feature works well with WhatsApp build v2.17.322 for Android devices and V2.17.52 for iOS devices. The app also has again the text only status.

The new update allows users to return to the home screen or any other app during a video call. The scene will be the same with the new WhatsApp text status as well.
