One of the best features of WhatsApp is Status which lets you inform your contacts what you are doing, thinking or something like that. Until recently, it was only possible via text messages, photos, videos, and gif images. Now, you can share your voice recording as your WhatsApp status. Here is how to do it.

WhatsApp introduces a new feature that allows users to post voice notes as their status instead of pictures or videos. Users can record their voice directly from WhatsApp and make it their status. The feature is similar to Twitter Spaces, and Clubhouse allows users to post voice updates.


The voice status feature is available with the latest WhatsApp beta version for Android and iOS. You can record a 30-second voice note to post it as a standalone status for 24 hours.
