How to share your WhatsApp status on Facebook

Published

on

Facebook-owned started testinga new feature back in June that would let users share their Status to Facebook Story. Well, it seems the testing has gone smooth as the company has begun rolling out this feature to its users.

WhatsApp hasnt made an official announcement about the rollout yet, but several users took to Twitter to report the arrival of this feature. Weve also got it on our Android smartphones with version 2.19.258 of the app in India. But our iPhone in India and Android smartphones over at the HQ in Europe are yet to receive it, suggesting this is a limited rollout.

That said, WhatsApp has set up an FAQ page on its website detailing the steps to share a WhatsApp Status to Facebook Story or other apps, which suggests a global rollout should commence soon.

If you happen to be one of the Android users who received this feature, you will see a “Share to Facebook Story” option under “My status” in the Status tab, with a share button right next to it.

Tapping on that share button will open the share tray, showing all the apps that you can share your WhatsApp Status with. And, tapping on “Share to Facebook Story” will present the Facebook app icon. Tapping on the Facebook app icon will open the app to let you share your WhatsApp Status to Facebook Story.

Also, if youve posted multiple status updates, then all of them will be shared with Facebook Story. So if you want to share only a few of them, you will have to go to the “My status” section, choose the ones you want to share, tap on the three-dot button in the top-right corner and then on the “Share to Facebook” option.

Its also worth noting that the WhatsApp Status you share with Facebook or other apps wont be protected with end-to-end encryption. And, this feature to share WhatsApp Status will be only available if you have Facebook for Android, Facebook for iOS or Facebook Lite installed on your device.

FG, south-west governors agree on Amotekun

The federal government and governors of states in the south-west have reached the agreement to draw up a legal framework for the Western Nigeria Security Network code-named: Amotekun, The Cable reports.

Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state, disclosed this to state house correspondents at the end of a meeting Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had with the six governors from the region on Thursday.

Akeredolu said the legal framework will help resolve all “burning issues” surrounding the security network.

Asked if the governors failed to draw up the legal framework for the outfit before the launch on January 9, Akeredolu said the inspector-general of police and other “relevant security agencies” were duly consulted.

Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice, who had described the outfit as illegal, was part of the meeting.

While the meeting was ongoing, Malami had insisted that the outfit was illegal.

“Well we had a very fruitful discussion. Governors of south-west, as you know, we were all there. The meeting was presided over by the Vice President. The Honourable Attorney General of the Federation was there as well as the Inspector General of Police,” he said.

“So, we have rubbed minds and all of us have agreed on the way forward. The most important one is that we are going to have legal framework to back this Amotekun. And this legal framework is going to be one which we all are going to look at and will be sure to go without any hindrance.”

Responding to a question on if establishment of the outfit had been put on hold until the legal framework is developed, he said: “No. What I believe is our resolution is that Amotekan is there, you know the federal government is starting community policing, in essence really is about community. So, we are going to work together to see the community policing and Amotekan work in a way.

“We felt that with all these noise outside it is better for us to sit down. Remember that immediately the noise started, I said that we are going to explore political solution and all of us are here, my colleague the deputy governor of Oyo who is of the PDP, all of us are here. So we have looked at this solution to it now, both political and legal solutions to it and all of us will do it.”

He said there was no time that the federal government tried to stop Amotekun.

Laolu Akande, spokesman of the vice-president, also issued a statement on the meeting with the south-west governors.

Akande said the meeting was at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, met today with South West Governors, the Attorney General of the Federation and the Inspector General of Police,” the statement read.

“The meeting was at the instance of the Governors who had asked to see President Muhammadu Buhari over the controversy surrounding the Amotekun Initiative. However due to the President’s foreign engagement, he asked the Vice President to host the meeting.

“The meeting was very fruitful and unanimous resolutions were made on the way forward. Having regard to the need for all hands to be on deck in addressing the security concerns across the country, it was agreed that the structure of Amotekun should also align with the Community Policing strategy of the Federal Government.

“It was also agreed that necessary legal instruments will be put in place by each of the States to give legal backing to the initiative and address all issues concerning the regulation of the security structure.”
