Meta added Stories, not just for Instagram and Facebook as well as WhatsApp, where we can receive something like “status” updates. There are already ways to post photos or videos, GIFs, and text messages to your status however, in the near future, you will have access to a brand new feature for voice notes.
In addition, Snapchat introduced the concept of “uploading 24 hour stories” which are uploads of text, photos or videos that disappear automatically within a day before being copied with Instagram and, later every other app that could be imagined.
According to information obtained from the WABetaInfo, WhatsApp appears to be working on a feature which allows customers to create and publish audio messages on the status bar of their WhatsApp status. When the feature becomes available the app will let users to record audio message, as you do use in chat. It could also allow you to upload already-existing audio recordings (because they can be used as messages in WhatsApp chats) however we’ve not seen any evidence as of yet.
Recordings of voice conversations included in status updates could share with WhatsApp contacts, using similar privacy options like videos and images, and they too would be encrypted from end-to-end.
WhatsApp isn’t the only app to test voice-based stories. Since a while, Twitter has been testing the capability to publish messages with voice on iOS however, not everybody has access to this ability. In WhatsApp’s case WhatsApp it seems to be more rational extension of status features. WhatsApp already supports audio messages, and has been doing since a few years.
