WhatsApp is like a big playground where everyone can talk and play together. It’s used by more than 2 billion people around the world, making it a very busy playground!

What’s New in the Playground?

Imagine seeing a new swing in your favorite playground. You might wonder, “Who put that there?”

Just like that, you might have seen something new in your WhatsApp statuses. It looks like WhatsApp itself has a status, and you’re probably wondering, “Why does WhatsApp appear in my WhatsApp statuses?” Let’s figure it out!

Why Does WhatsApp Appear in My WhatsApp Statuses?

WhatsApp appears in your statuses for a good reason. It’s like a teacher in the playground who tells you about new games or reminds you about the rules. WhatsApp uses its status to tell you about new features, remind you of existing ones, and give you news about the app. It’s a smart way to keep you in the loop!

How to Mute WhatsApp Statuses

Sometimes, when you’re playing, you might not want to hear the teacher. You just want to play without interruptions. In the same way, you can mute WhatsApp statuses if you don’t want to see them. Here’s how:

  1. Go to “Status”.
  2. Press and hold the WhatsApp status. This is like covering your ears!
  3. Now, you will see the word “mute”. Click on it, and you won’t see the WhatsApp status anymore.

If you use an iPhone, you can also mute the status by swiping it from right to left, just like sweeping it under the rug.

You can do this for any other statuses too. It’s helpful if there are lots of people and you don’t want to see all their statuses.

What if you want to unmute the status later? Just go to ‘Status’, scroll down to ‘muted’ statuses, press and hold the name, and then tap “unmute”. It’s like uncovering your ears again!

Why is this New WhatsApp Feature Useful?

You might be thinking, “Why do I need this new WhatsApp feature?” Here are some reasons:

  • It tells you about cool features in the app. WhatsApp’s status might show you something fun you didn’t know about!
  • The statuses use pictures or videos to explain things. It’s like a teacher showing you how to play a new game.
  • They have a “More information” link. This is like a book that tells you more about the game or the rule.

Now you know why WhatsApp appears in your statuses, and how to mute or unmute them. It’s all about making your time in the playground more fun and safe!
