Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a new 'voice status updates' feature on iOS beta, which will allow users to share voice notes via status updates.
Selected beta testers can now share voice notes as status updates by accessing the new feature within the text status section, reports WABetaInfo.
The maximum recording time for a voice note is 30 seconds, and users also have the option to forward voice notes from their chats to status.
The platform also provides users more control over their voice recordings by offering the ability to discard a recording before sharing it.
Similar to images and videos, voice notes shared via status will automatically disappear after 24 hours and users can delete them for everyone at any time.
Moreover, the shared voice notes are end-to-end encrypted so only people whom users choose can listen to them.
