Recently the leading WhatsApp news tracker WABetaInfo spotted and reported about some new features of the same function.

WhatsApp working on Status Reply Indicator
You all must be knowing that as one of the most in-demand messenger and chat support software WhatsApp is regularly undergoing updates bringing new features and adding more improvements to the existing ones. This time the platform has focused on the status update feature and working to enhance it for a better User experience.
Earlier WABetaInfo had reported improving the previews of the links feature and the ability to show status updates right within the chats list for a future update. Now the company is working on a new status reply indicator. In the screenshot released by the WhatsApp news source, you can see that a different icon will appear when the latest message of any chat is a reply to a status update.

This is surely a minor addition but is reported to be very useful while you receive a quick reaction to your status update in the future. This will help you to understand immediately what the recipient is referring to. The platform is planning to bring the same feature to WhatsApp beta Android and iOS users too.
As you all know that all under-development features tend to change at any time for more improvements so this feature will also take time before it is finally released to beta testers. There are also chances that the company may drop the plan to release this feature.
However, if the Status reply indicator is found to be useful for the app you will surely see it in near future. As already mentioned this feature is in the development process so there are not many details available at present. But you can expect some more news in the next few days.
