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.

Nicknames are familiar or custom names you can assign to people you interact with in Status. Nicknames offer a practical solution for remembering names that may be difficult to recall or distinguish.

info
Nicknames you add to others are personal and only visible to you.

When you assign a nickname to someone, the Status app prioritizes displaying the nickname over the original name chosen by the contact. The nickname and the contact's original name are always visible.
