WhatsApp Might Soon Let You Upload Voice Messages As Status

Once implemented, WhatsApp will allow you to upload a voice message in the same way that you can record a voice message in the chat.

The narrative of WhatsApp exists solely in the form of fleeting status updates. With the success of Snapchat, Meta adapted the concept of time-limited posts to other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp, making photos, videos, and text disappear after 24 hours.

Like other Meta platforms, WhatsApp lets you post 24-hour-only status updates that can include media like photos, GIFs, videos, and text. Additionally, there are whispers that the capability to add audio messages is on the horizon.

Apparently, WABetaInfo has learned that WhatsApp is working on a feature that will let users record audio messages and share them as status updates. When it’s implemented, the app will function similarly to a chat in that it will allow you to record an audio message.

There is currently no confirmation either way, but it’s possible that pre-existing audio files can be uploaded using the site as well. If you want to send an audio file that already exists, you can do so with WhatsApp, but it’s not clear if they support playing back those files at this time.

The voice recordings you share as status updates will be accessible to everyone in your WhatsApp contact list regardless of the privacy settings you’ve set for photos, videos, and other media. Furthermore, all of these upgrades would be encrypted. Since WhatsApp has not begun testing this feature, there is no information about when it will be made available to users everywhere.

When it comes to experimenting with voice posts, WhatsApp is merely the most recent platform to do so. Just recently, Twitter has been testing out a feature that lets iOS users tweet using their voices. Few users are taking part in this evaluation. In contrast to Twitter, the site has always welcomed audio communications, making the addition of voice notes as status updates a more organic fit.
