WhatsApp has reportedly begun rolling out a new feature for select Android beta testers to share voice memos as status updates. You can share language status updates with specific audiences. New features are available in the text status area for some beta channel users. These language status updates, such as video, photo, and text updates, also disappear after 24 hours. Feature tracker WABetaInfo reports that some beta testers who updated to version 220.127.116.11 can now post voice notes as WhatsApp status updates.
The WhatsApp Features and Updates Tracker website shows this feature in the text status section and adds that the maximum recording time for voice status updates is 30 seconds. Users can also discard the recording before recording and sharing again. Like other status updates, voice memos are protected by end-to-end encryption (E2EE). Users can also choose who can see their status in their privacy settings. As with video, photo and text status updates, voice status will also disappear after 24 hours of him.
The WAbetaInfo report added that the feature is likely to roll out to more users in the coming weeks. WhatsApp is also reportedly working on features to better handle spam messages. It turns out that Meta’s messaging service is testing a feature that allows users to block people who aren’t on their contact list directly from the notification bar. Finally, this feature allows users to block unknown and untrusted contacts without opening the chat. There are currently two options for WhatsApp message notifications. Reply and mark as read. An upcoming feature will give users a third option.
