WhatsApp allows you to enter clickable links in Status from your Android phone and iPhone (iOS). The function makes it possible to easily disseminate external websites, blogs and addresses of other social networks in your stories. Those interested can also add new text and change the background color to complement the post. The feature is useful because it allows the user to extend the possibilities of use of the platform, which also serves as a means of disclosure.
Unlike Instagram, where only verified profiles or with more than 10,000 followers can post links to Stories, anyone is able to post digital addresses to the messenger. Here's how to link to WhatsApp Status on devices running Apple and Google operating systems.
