  9. 9
    Let's tap "At work"
    .
    We can just say that we are at work and cannot reply, for example. The current status will change to "At work". Anyone who comes to look at our WhatsApp page will see the status. He will see that we are at work in this example and will probably understand that we cannot talk at that moment. There are other examples when we cannot talk. For example, "At the movies" or "Battery about to die". These statuses just allow other people to know some more information about our current actions.
