Philemon and others write, our joyful expression:

We are glad you are back, oh old ‘text status’👌😄✍

Thanks to our feedbacks, you and I plus the entire WhatsApp users. We enjoyed the new ‘Media Status’ update but we could not stop lamenting on the fact that text status was off! Recently, I published an article about WhatsApp getting ready to restore the old text status, as Beta users were already testing it out.

Today we are happy to let our readers know that WhatsApp have rolled it out to the general public, after three weeks of dying. Finally, our old ‘text status’ is back and we can’t express our joy fully!

On 24th February, 2017 saw the Video, Photo and GIF status update (what I call ‘media status’). Text status was off and we were sad. We sent WhatsApp feedbacks, via their web contacts, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, on Websites, Blogs and even in the news! And finally, after three weeks, today, March 17, our old text status is back, up and running.

We thank you, Facebook (WhatsApp Inc).
