WhatsApp is getting Snapchat styled stories too

WhatsApp has cloned Snapchat’s popular stories format and is using it to replace its old text-based status messages. The feature begins rolling out to WhatsApp’s billion-plus users today on Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone.

WhatsApp becomes the fourth Facebook product to clone Snapchat stories. Instagram was the first, in August. It was followed by Facebook Messenger and then Facebook itself, both of which are still testing the feature in a small number of countries.

Because Facebook can’t make it stick in one app so they’ll shove it done our collective throats in one way or another in an attempt to remain relevant.

Remember when a messaging app sent messages?
