According to reports, WhatsApp is developing a new feature that would let users publish voice notes as status updates. Currently, WhatsApp status updates can include both images and videos. The change made by the instant messaging service owned by Meta would make it simpler for users to maintain audio notes as their status. The function has been discovered in WhatsApp for Android beta version 184.108.40.206, which is accessible through the Google Play Beta program, but testers cannot access it. The term “voice status” refers to a voice memo shared as a status update that is allegedly protected by end-to-end encryption. Recently, it was discovered that WhatsApp was working on a chat sync function that would enable users to transfer conversations across two devices.
The WhatsApp status feature is reportedly getting enhancements, and users will soon be able to submit audio notes as their status, according to a report by WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo. The feature was discovered in the Android WhatsApp beta version 220.127.116.11, however, it is still under development and is not accessible to beta testers. “Voice status” could refer to a voice memo shared as a status update.
Just last week, WhatsApp was developing a chat sync function that may let users transfer conversations across two phones. The function was discovered in the Android beta version 18.104.22.168. Additionally, the business has been found to be working on a feature that would enable users to mask their online status. Users would be able to select who may see when they are online on the instant messaging app using this feature. It’s likely to be included in a subsequent version.
