That WhatsApp is almost a religion in countries like Spain is beyond doubt. Because what other application would drag a person into the purchase of a smartphone? Thanks to how widespread it is among the population, it is enough to know someone’s number to secure contact by writing him a WhatsApp message. Not only that, there are other ways to establish communication links. Like the states.
A circle around the contact warns that a Status has been uploaded
The idea is simple: since hardly anyone gets lost in the States tab even though WhatsApp indicates news with a notification point, the messaging platform has decided circle avatars so that everyone can see that State that they have pending to browse. The measure is so striking at first glance that it is very difficult not to fall into that curiosity.
We already knew the novelty of the States because WaBetaInfo was in charge of advancing it a few months ago. Now, as we have verified in our WhatsApp applications, the notice of States to reproduce has reached all userseven those who use the stable apps (and not the beta ones).
When you open your WhatsApp you will see how those contacts who uploaded a Status have a circle in their chat; You’ll also appreciate the circle when accessing contact information. Y will change color and appearance depending on how you interacted with those States:
- Blue circle on iPhone and green on Android. If you have a WhatsApp Status to see.
- gray circle. The contact has States that you have already seen.
- Part of the gray circle. The circle is divided depending on the States that the user has uploaded: if any are pending, part of the halo will be gray.
The circle of States has begun to expand within WhatsApp applications, both Android and iPhone. It reaches all users, whether or not they are in the stable version, although it will probably take a few weeks to fully expand.
