Best WhatsApp Status to Make Your Friends Laugh

In a field crowded with messaging clients, WhatsApp has risen above the rest to become one of the world’s favorite ways to send messages. It has a huge user community, a beautiful and simple interface, and it allows free voice and text communication all around the world. Adding to the appeal of WhatsApp are its platform-agnostic philosophy and the fact that (unlike Facebook Messenger, which like WhatsApp is a Facebook product) the app doesn’t bog your phone down with games and other nonsense that don’t relate to its main purpose. If you’re trying to keep in touch with family across the country or friends across the street, WhatsApp is the go-to app for casual communication.

Statuses in WhatsApp

WhatsApp mainly doesn’t try to be a Messenger clone, but it does have one social-media feature that has become very popular. You can set a status in WhatsApp, which lets your friends see what you’re up to without having to ping you with a message or a call. It’s rather a throwback to the old days of AOL Instant Messaging, Yahoo Chat, and MSN Messenger, when users would set a status and leave it up for an hour or a year, to let their friends know what they were up to.

However, unlike the old days where you could only set statuses to things like “Available” or “Away”, WhatsApp lets you add your own text message to show as your status. This makes the feature kind of a combination of the old-school status and a short Facebook or Twitter update. It’s a very popular feature, since it lets you give out meaningful or amusing information without forcing people to ping you to be updated and forcing you to respond. It’s just there and visible. You can also send out an active status update to all of your contacts.

How to Change your WhatsApp Status

There are two types of WhatsApp status: your “about” (the old-school way of status-setting), which sets the status people see when they look at your profile, and the relatively new “Status” page (a knock-off Instagram stories feature), which sends out an update. The two statuses are different; changing one will not change the other.

Changing the Permanent Status

  1. Open the WhatsApp app.
  2. Tap the three-dot icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
  3. Tap “Settings” in the menu that pops up.
  4. Tap your name, then tap the edit button (the pen icon) under “About”.
  5. Select a default status from the menu, or tap the edit button under “Currently set to” and type a new status.
  6. Hit the back button in the upper left-hand corner twice.

Sending Out a Status Update

  1. Open the WhatsApp app.
  2. Tap the “Status” tab between the “Chats” and “Calls” tab at the top of the app.
  3. Tap “My Status”.
  4. Add a new picture or video and a caption.
  5. Hit the right arrow button to send the status out to your contacts list.

Note that unlike the permanent status update above, the statuses you send out to your contact list will disappear after 24 hours.

WhatsApp statuses are not only for serious communication. What would be the fun in that? If you’re looking for a funny WhatsApp status to make your friends chuckle, we’ve got some great suggestions for you.
