WhatsApp users for iPhone (iOS) have a quick way to view the Status of friends. The messenger widget for Apple phones presents, in addition to recent contacts, all the instant stories available in the app. In this way, it is possible to view the posts without having to open the application using the traditional method.
IOS widgets work with application extensions, and can be enabled or disabled at any time by the user. The WhatsApp extension, like the others, is managed in a simple way, without the need to access the system settings. To learn how to use the feature, follow the step-by-step tutorial we have prepared.
