WhatsApp is all set to unleash a series of latest features this year. From number blocking via a quick shortcut to screenshot viewing on a restricted timelines—there is so much in works for making the Meta-owned app more secure and cool. You might soon be able to set Voice notes or recording as Status on the latest version of the app.
More details on the features
WhatsApp has begun testing this Voice Status spec for its Android users. The reports come in from WaBetaInfo that has supposedly spotted this on the 22.214.171.124 Android update on the Beta version. WhatsApp has been testing such new features on the app’s beta version.
- The new Voice Status sounds like a chirpy thing to add besides the already existing voice messaging feature on the chats. The news seems pretty self-explanator
- If you are a beta user, simply check for the feature on the text status section of the social messaging app. The app allows you to allow only certain contacts to access the Voice Status update. While this will give you control over the recordings, you also get to be able to discard such recordings before these go public.
- About the process for play pause, the experience is not known to be as seamless as the WhatsApp experience on its usual chats. For the regular chats, WhatsApp allows listening to a note even if you close its chat window.
The latest status feature will help people work better with their content and even share stuff such as songs with their contacts. However, there would be a restricted timeline for the feature. The voice note status could only be up to 30 seconds. As for regular status updates, the auto-delete happens after 24 hours. Of course, you can delete the status, post uploading too.
The latest feature is being developed currently and users can expect more heads up over the coming weeks. Perhaps, the official word on the same could occur anytime soon!
