Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in its beta stage. This means the application is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable within the app.
A direct message (or DM, for short) is a communication between you and another person. In Status, you can send direct messages to people in your contact list. If the person is not your contact yet, send a contact request first.
Tap the person you want to chat with and start sending messages.
