According to the report, WhatsApp has started rolling out this feature to its beta testers today. It is likely that it will be added in stable build in the coming weeks.
The beta version users of WhatsApp link can now directly share the link of their Status to Facebook and other supported apps. However, WhatsApp says the new feature won’t require you to link your account to Facebook and it will simply operate via Android and iOS sharing APIs.
In addition, it is not clear at the moment how WhatsApp will implement this feature. Many people use WhatsApp precisely because it’s a more private messaging service than Facebook or Facebook Messenger.
And that’s why most people would not prefer to share their private posts on such open platforms. Facebook’s sharing of WhatsApp’s Status will look something like this.
