After experimenting with voice status feature in Android beta for a long time, WhatsApp has finally rolled out this fun option for all users. Just like you send a voice note to someone during a chat on the instant messaging platform, now with this new feature you can give voice record status along with photo-video. But in this case, only 30 seconds of time can be recorded to give a voice status, exactly the same as the duration of a video status.
Privacy of voice status can be set as desired
Let’s say in this context, the company has already announced that the voice status feature of WhatsApp will be end-to-end encrypted (end-to-end encrypted). That means you don’t have to worry about the voice notes being read by third parties. Users can also set their privacy settings while sharing this type of status. Note that, like photos and videos, voice notes shared via status will automatically disappear after 24 hours.
