- WhatsApp’s new feature lets iOS users post 30-second voice notes on their status.
- The feature came to iOS users a month after it was launched for Android users.
- The messaging platform is planning to launch several other features in 2023.
After launching several interesting features, the Meta-owned Messaging platform WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature for iOS users that will allow them to post voice notes on their WhatsApp status. It should be noted that the feature was initially launched for Android users last month along with other features, including status reactions, status profile rings for new updates, private audience selector, and link previews. The voice note status was previously unavailable for iOS users, even though most of these features are already available. Let’s look at the most recent feature that WhatsApp is making available to iOS users.
Voice notes WhatsApp status for iOS users
Now, iOS users can record and share voice notes on WhatsApp that last up to 30 seconds. Last month, in a blog post, the company said that voice status could be used to send personal updates, particularly if you feel more at ease speaking than typing. In order to use the new feature, users can visit their App Store and update the WhatsApp app.
Voice note on WhatsApp status: how to post it?
- Utilize your iOS device to access WhatsApp.
- The ‘Status’ tab is located at the bottom of the screen.
- The floating pencil-icon button next to “My Status” in the top right corner of the screen should be selected.
- For a voice message to be recorded, tap the microphone icon in the bottom right corner.
- Start your message recording by holding down the microphone icon.
- You have a 30-second recording time limit.
- When your message has finished recording, release the microphone icon to listen to the message again.
- For your recording to be shared as a status update, tap the send icon.
Meanwhile, on the other hand, the most recent WhatsApp status updates include a “private audience selector,” which was introduced last month for Android users. It enables users to quickly select a privacy option per status to control who can view their status updates.
On the status screen, a new audience selector button appears; when clicked, a menu allowing users to manage the visibility of their status updates appears. According to the company, the most recent audience choice will be remembered and used as the default for the next status update.
According to a recent report, WhatsApp may soon roll out a new feature that will enable users to mute unwanted calls. The as-yet-unannounced feature was discovered by WABetaInfo and follows coverage of another experimental feature called “Newsletters,” which is intended to streamline group communications.
