WhatsApp to allow status updates with 30-second voice notes
By Judith Gicobi
Users will soon be able to share audio records as status updates on WhatsApp.
The development of avatar configuration was previously disclosed by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo. These features are being worked on and will eventually be made available to beta testers.
“WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124: what’s new? WhatsApp is working on voice status updates, for a future update of the app!” a tweet read.
Users will be able to share 30-second audio notes with contacts based on privacy settings, said WABetaInfo.
The function seems to be comparable to text status composer. The backdrop color for voice notes, which appear as message bubbles, can be selected by users.
