WhatsApp is known to keep introducing new features for its users frequently. A recent report from WABetaInfo revealed that the Met-owned messaging platform is currently working on a new feature that will allow users to add voice notes or messages to their status.

WhatsApp to allow voice messages on Status

According to the report, WhatsApp is currently working on a feature for Android users that will allow users to add short voice notes to WhatsApp Status. Probably called “Voice Status”, this feature should be available in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android update.

According to the screenshot shared in the report, a microphone (voice note icon) will appear at the bottom of the status window, along with an edit and camera icon. You just need to press and hold the icon to record the voice note and download it with a caption.

Notably, this status will be visible to all users you have chosen in your status privacy setting. Regarding privacy, the report clarifies that “the voice note will be end-to-end encrypted like other images and videos shared with your status.”

Since this feature is still under development, it is not yet confirmed when or if it will be rolled out to all Android and iOS users.

For the uninitiated, WhatsApp manager Will Cathcart has warned WhatsApp users against using a modded version of the messaging app on their smartphones. In a thread on Twitter, Cathcart warned users against using third-party developers’ version of WhatsApp because they hide malware in the apps. He said that while these apps promise new features to WhatsApp users, they also steal user data stored on users’ phones.

WhatsApp has also introduced new emoji reactions for text on its platform. Until now, users could choose one from a set of six emojis, which include thumbs up, heart, ROFL, surprised, sad, and folded hands emojis.
