  1. Interesting.
    But I wish to know whats in the background, i.e is it mini keyboard for tab and smartphone. How much does it cost looks sleek

  2. I didn’t find it interesting. It miss the punch which we used to show by our stand alone status line.

  3. WhatsApp has added a good functionality but the way old status was handled was very simple amd easy… Will really take more time to search contacts, their profile pics AWA their Statuses….
