Tech: Whatsapp is bringing this amazing new feature, and users will be happy to know; read the details!


WhatsApp keeps on introducing new features for the best messaging app experience. Now WhatsApp is rolling out to some beta testers the ability to share voice notes via status updates. As of now, users can only share pictures and videos as status updates.


According to WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, the maximum recording time for a voice note is 30 seconds. The latest version of WhatsApp will be required to listen to the voice notes shared via Status.

Some beta testers can share voice notes as status updates by accessing the feature within the text status section (if it's enabled for them). The report states that the feature to share voice notes via status updates is expected to be rolled out to more users in the coming weeks.

As per the report, the Meta-owned messaging application is giving users more control by giving them the ability to discard recordings before sharing.

It should be noted that voice notes shared as status updates are always end-to-end encrypted, ensuring that only the people you choose in your privacy settings can listen to them. Voice notes will also disappear from your status after 24 hours.
