Revert WhatsApp recent changes, Remove new status update features.

This petition had 75 supporters

Hi All,

As You might be aware of the recent changes in Whatsapp. Kindly help us to sign this petition and to reach a big we can try removing this feature.

WhatsApp has removed the old status update feature that people used with their profile photo. The app after the update, no more shows the old status. Instead We can now only see our username and the phone number. For many people who used their status as a subtle medium to inform their contacts about their absence or availability in town, WhatsApp's new feature won't help them.

The new WhatsApp Status update allows us to share photos, videos and Gifs but no texts. We cannot 'post' any text Status, which is rather strange. If we want to say something we have to say it with photos. The new update does not allow us to post text messages. At the same time, it also won't let us keep the status for more than 24 hours.

The updated WhatsApp no more shows the contact tab where we could find all our contacts. Instead, it now shows message logo at the top which when touched takes to the 'select contact' page where only we can find all our contacts. This is unnecessarily complicating the simplest thing.

Note: By Signing this petition you agree with the above stated terms in removing recent changes in whatsapp.
