WhatsApp has announced the introduction of new features to its status to provide users with a better experience. These features include Voice Status, Private Audience Selector, Status Reactions, Status Profile Rings, and Link Previews on Status.
This announcement was made on the WhatsApp blog today. The update has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks
We’re excited to add a set of new features to status on WhatsApp that make it easier to express yourself and connect with others.
These features, particularly the Voice status, have been in beta testing for a while. The idea for its conception might be because of the high traction of users who use voice messages daily on the platform.
WhatsApp allows individuals to share audio messages in a regular chat, but sharing voice notes as your status is a new idea for the messaging platform. With this new feature, users can now record and share voice messages on their WhatsApp Status for up to 30 seconds
It will be very useful for vocal individuals and those who wish to promote their audio content, music, etc., with their contacts and friends. Just like for regular chat, users can record voice notes by tapping the microphone icon on the status screen.
