    Hello,
    I have updated my lumia 520 to 8.1 using developers preview today, everything looks great, however my most favourite thing about this phone is gone, it's the chat status in texting. In wp 8.0 when you click on texting icon you could set your chat status to online,away,invisible or offline(I'm sure there were more) but now in wp 8.1 it's gone? It was very handy to chat with people on facebook without actually using facebook app, chat status thing was way faster and much more comfortable in my opinion. Is it going to be back or can I enable it somehow?

    Nope. Sadly not. You will need to download the Facebook chat app. That has loads now features though, such as stickers, and it is actually quite quick, so it is not so bad

    It's a separate app now - I think you have to use the 'Facebook Messenger' app: Messenger | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    This was the best feature about windows phone and they have swallowed it without properly researching it. Social media without logging onto apps was the best thing in the windows phone.
