WhatsApp is working on the ability to show status updates directly from the chats list like Instagram. This new addition will give a boost to the Status feature on the messaging app. With this feature, users will be able to see the statuses of their contacts quickly.
WhatsApp is also spotted working on a feature where users will be able to create group polls on the desktop. It would let group members vote for a specific option and look at the total number of votes received.
As per WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, the status update will appear when the user taps the profile picture of their contact, according to the source. This is similar to Instagram where you can look at stories of people you are chatting with.
WABetaInfo shared a screenshot to show us what it will look like. It has taken from a future build of WhatsApp Desktop which will soon be available on Android and iOS as well.

Users won’t be able to see who voted, but the admin will be able to see the total number of posts.
