WhatsApp May Add Newsletters To Status Tab
Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is now rolling out new features in its application. A few days back, it was reported that the company was preparing to launch a new edit message feature to enable its user to modify the sent message easily. Now the company is reportedly redesigning its Status tab for Android beta to include a “newsletters” feature.

As per a WABetaInfo report, the company is working on revamping the Status tab by adding two separate sections, i.e., Status and Newsletter.
The significant aspects of this redesigned section will be the inclusion of users’ subscribed newsletters directly in the Status tab, as well as the ability to search for newsletters by username.
Furthermore, status updates will be displayed in a horizontal layout like Instagram Stories.
Users who create and subscribe to the newsletter will have their phone numbers hidden to make their identity unrevealed.
Moreover, the report said that users would be able to control who they follow and who else won’t be able to view it.
It was reported last month that the company was working on a new private newsletter feature, a one-to-many tool for disseminating information.
