WhatsApp has been investing in a new tool for a few months now. The function enables a new form for sharing sounds within the messenger. Understand how the sound condition will work.
The information in this text came from a portal that specializes in spreading WhatsApp news directly. WABetaInfo is often not wrong with its predictions and has been warning users about the sound state for some time.
Find out how the new feature works in the most popular messaging app in Brazil and the world.
The “Voice Status” function is coming to WhatsApp
As can be seen in the screenshot shared by the WABetaInfo website, once available, “WhatsApp Audio Status” will make it possible to add a small audio note to the statuses. This way, the rest of your contacts will be able to hear you in a different way within the platform. All this will depend, of course, on the privacy settings of the user and who decides to restrict viewing of their status.
When you post audio status on The WhatsApp-You can change the status background color, and the voice message can last up to 30 seconds. When you open the page, the audio will start playing automatically.
When will it reach all users?
The novelty is found in version 18.104.22.168 of WhatsApp beta, which means that it is only available for testing. Also, it can only be tried on devices that use the Android operating system. Soon, iPhone owners who have the beta version will also be able to see how the feature works for themselves.
As always, WhatsApp has not given any opinion on the matter and there is no scheduled release date for audio statuses for the entire user base. It is expected that in a few weeks the feature will be activated in the latest version of the program for both Android For iOS.
