SAN FRANCISCO: WhatsApp has rolled out a new update which lets users add colourful background to text status.

The functionality is similar to the one on Facebook, where a selection of background colour options pop up when typing a new status update.

The background can be added to text status by tapping the 'pencil' icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, The Independent reported on Wednesday.

However, the update has not been rolled out to all users yet.
