What all more WhatsApp in planning?
It is also working on a new way to show the status. Interestingly, it could be soon made private. Users will also be able to view just how many of their friends saw their message update, and they will also be able to delete these status updates. The instant messaging app is working on all these features and is trying to make more like the Snapchat.

Whatsapp has over 160 million users in India and it is one of the most popular apps in the country. So for now we need to wait for the final launch of this feature by WhatsApp.
