WhatsApp to allow voice notes as status in a latest feature update, which sounds cool because the messaging app currently allow send voice messages to regular chats. Here is everything we know about the latest update on WhatsApp.
According to WaBetaInfo report, the new feature in 188.8.131.52 Android beta update, and eligible users will see it in the text status section of the app. The messaging app even lets you configure who all can check out your Voice Status update.
People will also get control over their voice recordings as the app will also give the ability to discard a recording before making it public.
It’s uncertain whether the play pause process would be as frictionless as WhatsApp’s regular chat functionality. It’s unclear if the voice status function will include an edit or replay option. As more users have access to the feature, we should have more clarity on this.
On the other hand, this functionality also has a time limit. A voice note can only be recorded for 30 seconds at a time.
Additionally, much like with the photographs or videos you now submit as Status on WhatsApp, voice notes shared via the Status area will be automatically deleted after 24 hours.
