The Meta-owned platform WhatsApp is currently working on adding the option to exchange voice notes in status updates for the iOS beta.
According to WABetaInfo, you will get to post a voice note of up to 30 seconds along with a text. Just like in a WhatsApp chat, the microphone icon will appear when you don’t enter any text within this section; otherwise, it means you’re going to send a text via a status update as usual.
It is important to note that your voice status updates will only be shared with the people you specify in your privacy settings, and they’ll always be end-to-end encrypted.
The report stated that the availability of the Voice status update is still under development and will be available in the future.
