Splash of Colors: Would You Use the New Colored Text Status on WhatsApp?

I might not be active on Facebook, but I still get to see how people use the colorful text-based status feature.

Now, the company has copied and pasted the said feature on Whatsapp. Henceforth, WhatsApp users can write their status update with a colorful background, font, and emoji combination. To use this on iOS, simply, select the new pen icon next to the camera icon. This will bring up the option to type a status, choose a font, emoji, and the background color as well. For Android users, the floating pen icon shows up at the bottom of the Status tab, above the camera icon.

Windows user?

Err. .. This is not for you.

So, is this something you’d use on Whatsapp?
