Starting today, users of the WhatsApp beta program will begin to see a new sharing option below Status, which can be used to post a particular post directly to us. Stories from Facebook or Instagram.

In addition to the main WhatsApp “sister” social networks, it will be possible to share the content of Status for other apps like Gmail and Google Photos. Despite this, WhatsApp said it is not doing this to link any services to the messenger.

Instead, it is using the same iOS and Android data sharing APIs as all other apps, which means data is transferred between apps locally on the device itself.

Even if you share data with another service owned by Facebook, such as Instagram, WhatsApp says that all publications may be edited separately.

This is not the first time WhatsApp and Facebook have approached ties between their platforms. When Facebook acquired messaging in 2014, WhatsApp promised it would not share user data with Facebook and said it would work independently and autonomously which, as we see, did not happen exactly.

Another feature tested on the WhatsApp beta platform is the option to hide all Status from your contacts. This will be possible from a small “Hide” button that removes all available posts from the screen, as reported by WABetaInfo.

Launched in 2017, the Status WhatsApp is used daily by half of the platform's total users (ie 500 million people) and next year will become the first place within the app to display ads.
