WhatsApp introduced its version of the background colors for text status updates that were previously rolled out by parent company Facebook.

The messaging application said in an email to Social Pro Daily that users of its WhatsApp Status feature can now customize fonts and background colors for their text-based status updates, and they can also include links.

The feature was rolled out to all iPhone and Android users Monday, along with the ability to view WhatsApp Status updates on the web version of the app.

WhatsApp Status debuted in February, and text-only status updates were brought back the following month.

Facebook introduced background colors for text-only status updates on Android in December 2016, extending the feature to iOS in March.
