Voice notes as status updates

WhatsApp’s Status feature– the app’s version of the Stories feature we see on other platforms like Instagram– has been largely limited to pictures, videos, and text updates.

However, it seems the platform will soon allow some more flexibility when it comes to its Status updates by adding support for Voice Notes, according to WABetaInfo.

Voice Status will allow users to record a quick audio note and share it on their Status tab, similar to how users could send to other WhatsApp users in the chat window. It will allow users to share important updates with sound cues.

The WABetaInfo suggests that the feature is currently in development and will come with a future update. A screenshot also shows how the implementation will look. A voice button will pop-up for update.
