Previously, you could only share audio messages in your WhatsApp chats. However, earlier this year, WhatsApp introduced the audio feature on WhatsApp status. From the ability to share texts, videos, and images, you can share a personalized voice recording. The WhatsApp audio status allows the users to record and share voice messages for up to 30 seconds on WhatsApp status. Voice status can be used for sending more personal updates, especially if you feel more comfortable expressing yourself by talking rather than typing.
Before you learn how to record and post a WhatsApp Audio status, here is what you should know;
- You can only record up to 30 seconds of audio per time. If the audio you intended to record is longer than that, you will have to re-begin the process. You can post up to 30 WhatsApp Audio Statuses.
- Just like other WhatsApp statuses, the audio status will expire in 24 hours unless you decide to cut its span short by deleting it.
- For now, it’s impossible to mix media on your audio Status. In simple terms, you can not add images, videos, or text on the same audio status.
- Currently, you can only forward in-chat WhatsApp audios to your Status.
