WhatsApp Spotted Working on Status Reply Indicator, Ability to Let Businesses Set Up Cover Photos on Desktop


He found that WhatsApp is working on a status reply indicator that users will see when they receive replies to their status updates. The feature is said to be currently in development and not yet available for beta testers, although it will likely be available to users on Android and iOS as well as desktop in the future. In addition to the status reply indicator, WhatsApp has been spotted offering the ability to set up a cover photo when using the desktop instant messaging app.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp beta tracker, WhatsApp is developing a status reply indicator to make it easier for users to see when their contacts responded to the latest status update. The indicator helps distinguish a status reply from public message replies right on the Chats screen.

WABetaInfo shared a screenshot to suggest how the indicator should look. The screenshot is said to be from a recent beta build of WhatsApp Desktop, although the feature is expected to be available to beta testers on Android and iOS in the near future.

WABetaInfo, in a separate report, mentioned that the cover photo setting feature is in development on WhatsApp for Desktop beta. This feature will allow businesses to have a custom cover photo – just as Facebook allows users to have a different cover on their profiles and pages on the platform.
