So WhatsApp rolling out an update to the Windows Phone app. There is no change-log available for this update, so we are assuming that the update will hold the some general bug fixes and improvements.

Just like me you are also excited to see the update could bring the new Status feature, but I tried everything and there is nothing like that in this update. Also restarted device twice but still nothing. The update bumped the app to the version 2.17.80.

Maybe this update could prepare the device for the new status update feature. It is possible that the company now will enable this feature by some server side update. However some reports also pointing out that the new Status feature is already rolling out to many countries. Maybe now it’s time for India to I believe.

Let us know in a comment below if you get the new Status feature in WhatsApp for Windows Phone. In addition also let us know if you find any notable new changes in this update. Stay tune to Windows Latest for more update.

Note : I also checked it with the Android version which is still on the version 2.17.65. And no Status feature.
