Not long ago after the release of the latest whatsapp version, that left every user complaining of the new status system introduced to use pictures or videos to upload their profile, without the option of using text status updates. With different complaints coming from users for the inability to use text status, Whatsapp went a little more mile by correcting the issue by restoring back the text Whatsapp status update.
