Through a future update, WhatsApp hopes to improve the app’s status updates. The new WhatsApp beta version for Android (188.8.131.52) offers the option to attach audio notes to status updates, as first noted by WABetaInfo.
“Voice statuses” will be the name of the new category of status updates. You may use this to record audio messages and upload them to your WhatsApp status, as the name suggests.
A new button will be added as part of the upgrade on the status tab’s bottom. You may rapidly add voice remarks to your status updates by pressing the button with the microphone symbol.
Voice status updates work the same way as regular status updates in that they are only visible to the persons you specify in your privacy settings. Just like all other communications and material exchanged on WhatsApp, the voice notes will be end-to-end encrypted.
Since the functionality is still under development, it is unknown when it will include in WhatsApp’s stable release. However, because it is already there in WhatsApp Beta, it is certain to make an appearance on the main app sooner rather than later.
WhatsApp is developing a shortcut for seeing status updates immediately through the conversation list, according to related news. In the event that you neglect to check the status tab, this will ensure that you don’t miss out on anyone’s most recent changes.
Currently, WhatsApp is merely the most recent platform to try voice posts for various uses. Twitter. has just begun experimenting with the ability to submit voice tweets on iOS. Furthermore, only a small number of users are participating in this test. Contrary to Twitter, the site already accepts audio communications and has done so for some time now. So the inclusion of voice notes as status updates feels more natural.
