The Android users can get an access to the feature by clicking on the floating pencil button that is normally found on the WhatsApp’s status tab. The new feature has not yet been rolled out for the latest beta version 2.17.291. However, there are certain users claiming to have access to the new feature. As per the company, it must be just a server switch but not exactly an update.
Lately, the company has publicized that the feature is being used by over 250 Million users.
