Whatsapp is considering incorporating videos in our profile. We all have a nasty side that leads us to investigate about the profile photos and the states of our contacts in WhatsApp. The photo and the phrase are a way to show the mood of oneself, so there are people who update it almost few times a month.
Social networks largely serve these things and soon WhatsApp will include this feature too. On the other hand we find Instagram, that with their short stories and that disappear, the users can share their day to day experiences.
As you are reading, it seems that the most used instant messaging application in the world is testing a new feature. WhatsApp could be testing a new feature in its app, a kind of Stories in which users will have the possibility to add both photos and videos in profile, also presenting a renewed interface which would appear like a news wall.
The tests WhatsApp is doing are not definitive, so we do not know if this will be seen in a final version of the application. The idea of this novelty is the fact of not acceding directly to the chats, but to see these small histories.
With the new interface would appear an icon next to the username, with the aim of showing any new story by the same person. With the possible new version of WhatsApp the application could get even closer to the concept of social network, as it is considered as an instant messaging app and this way it would become a kind of hybrid.
