WhatsApp keeps releasing new features for the best messaging app experience. Now Meta’s messaging app is releasing the ability to share voice notes via status updates with some beta testers. As of now, users can only share photos and videos as status updates.

According to WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, the maximum recording time for a voice note is 30 seconds. The latest version of WhatsApp is required to listen to voice notes shared via status.

Some beta testers can share voice memos as status updates by accessing the feature in the text status section (if it’s enabled for them). The ability to share voice notes via status updates is expected to be released to more users in the coming weeks, the report said.

“Thanks to this feature, it would have been possible to share a voice note as a status update with a certain audience configured within your privacy settings. The feature was announced while it was still in development, but there’s good news for some lucky beta users who install the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 2.23.2.8 available on the Google Play Store,” WABetaInfo reports.

According to the report, Meta’s messaging application gives users more control by providing the ability to delete a recording before sharing it.

It should be noted that voice memos shared as status updates are always end-to-end encrypted so that only the people you choose within your privacy settings can listen to them. Voice notes also disappear from your status after 24 hours.
