WhatsApp is indeed working on a feature that will allow users to share their WhatsApp Status updates directly to Instagram. This integration will enable users to post their WhatsApp Status to Instagram Stories with a single tap, similar to how Instagram Stories can be shared on Facebook. The feature is currently in beta testing and is expected to be rolled out soon. Users will have control over which Status updates they share on Instagram, and they can turn off the feature at any time.

Additionally, WhatsApp is developing a username search function, which will allow users to search for contacts or messages by username. This feature is intended to enhance privacy and give users more control over their personal information. Users will have the option to set up a username, and they can modify, add, or remove it as needed. The platform for this feature's availability (Android, iOS, or both) is not yet confirmed.

These developments are part of Mark Zuckerberg's vision for cross-platform compatibility across all Meta applications.
