Looks like we'll soon be able to Snapchat ... via WhatsApp.

The messaging service say they're bringing out a new feature - caleed WhatsApp Status.

It'll allow you to share photos, videos and GIFs with all your contacts, similar to a Snapchat story.

Just like SnapChat, Instagram Stories and Facebook Stories, all the moments will disappear after 24 hours.

WhatsApp's Jan Koum made the announcement via a blog post.

He said, "We are excited to announce that, coinciding with WhatsApp's 8th birthday on February 24, we are reinventing the status feature. Starting today, we are rolling out an update to status, which allows you to share photos and videos with your friends and contacts on WhatsApp in an easy and secure way. Yes, even your status updates are end-to-end encrypted."
