The new features were added to the list of recent improvements for status updates to highlight their commitment to improving user experience.
This feature adds a more customized experience to the app as users can always control who sees their updates while sharing them.
With this feature, users can easily share voice notes for up to 30 seconds on status.
The new status reactions emoji are Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes, Face with Tears of Joy, Face with Open Mouth, Crying Face, Folded Hands, Clapping Hands, Party Popper, and Hundred Points.
Here, users can easily see if there is any update for status right within the chat list.
