Ammon News - WhatsApp hit the headlines this week after users noticed a subtle change within the app.

'Online' and 'Typing' - words displayed under the other user's name in your chats - had changed from having lowercase first letters to a capital 'O' and a capital 'T'.

While this sounds fairly minor, many users were not happy about it, with one claiming it 'hurt my soul.'

If you were pained by the capital letters, there's good news - WhatsApp has confirmed that it's backtracking on the change.

'This was just a small test, but it's going back to normal now,' a spokesperson said

The subtle change was introduced on both the iOS and Android WhatsApp apps last week.

While WhatsApp did not formally announce it, it garnered huge attention across social media.
