WhatsApp is reportedly working on an ephemeral photo-narrative feature that's in no way a rip-off of Snapchat. According to Mashable, the Facebook-owned messaging service is testing an image-sharing function called Status. The project was apparently uncovered by keen-eyed folks examining the most recent WhatsApp betas for iOS and Android. The plan appears to be that Status will slot in on the tab menu between Chats and Calls. There'll even be the ability to create doodles and add text captions just like... you know.
