The other is the ability to share your WhatsApp status across various platforms, including Facebook. In 2017, the company was fined $122 million by the European Commission for misleading regulators about the extent to which it could link accounts prior to the acquisition. Users also won't have their status suddenly appear on Facebook as the choice to share the Status will require a user actively select the option during the posting process. Users who have signed for the Google Play's beta program for WhatsApp will only be able to find this feature in their app at the moment. CEO Mark Zuckerberg noted that merging the apps will bring them together. Basically, WhatsApp is adding a new option called "Share to Facebook Story" in the WhatsApp Status tab. I don't think so this feature will be loved by people as it will just lead to confusion and nothing more.

WhatsApp's Stories-like Status feature was launched back in 2017 and now has 500 million users on the service of its overall 1.5 billion active users. Whatsapp explains that the two posts would show as separate events in the Facebook system and they will not be linked like the others.
Notably, another Facebook-owned company, WhatsApp has been teasing the same feature for a while now and has also introduce the same in its Beta software. The report said the test feature would make use of the same iOS and Android data-sharing APIs as every other app.More news: UK PM hopeful Boris Johnson called French ‘turds’
There have also been other developments in the WhatsApp Beta for Android 2.19.183 as well. WhatsApp is testing the idea of letting its users share posts from their WhatsApp status with other apps. Back then, the feature was found on iOS, and now we have confirmation of the functionality working on Android phones.
Note: If you're new to either Facebook or WhatsApp, well, the Stories and Status update format are the same and was pioneered by Snapchat.More news: Bitcoin Continues Ascent And Crosses The $12000 Mark
