WhatsApp Rolls Out New ‘Voice Status Updates’ Feature

| Updated: January 21, 2023 5:10 pm

Users will be able to send audio notes via status updates thanks to a new feature called “voice status updates” that is purportedly being rolled out on iOS beta by the Meta-owned messaging service WhatsApp.

Certain beta testers can now access the new functionality from the text status area and exchange voice notes as status updates. Users can forward voice notes from their chats to status, and the maximum recording time for a voice note is 30 seconds.

By allowing users to delete a recording before sharing it, the platform also gives users more control over their voice recordings. Voice notes posted via status will automatically vanish after 24 hours, just like photographs and videos, and users can delete them for everyone at any time. Additionally, the shared voice notes are end-to-end encrypted so that only users who agree to listen can do so.

Over the upcoming weeks, the new feature is anticipated to be broadly rolled out to additional people, according to the media reports. The identical feature was said to be going out on Android beta on Wednesday.
