WhatsApp Extends Voice Status Updates Up One Minute Long

2 Mins read

Just like I wrote in my previous article on WhatsApp extending the video status update from 30 seconds to one minute, WhatsApp seems set to do the same for the voice status update as well.

I remember when the Voice status update was first introduced to WhatsApp, I enjoyed it so much that I found myself recording lengthy voice statuses in 30secs durations. I did complain that the duration was too short and time-consuming, sapping inspiration and creativity and I wished it could be extended. Alas!

In a bid to enhance user experience and provide more creative freedom for you and me, WhatsApp has decided to extend the feature to allow users to share longer voice messages as status updates from 30 seconds to a maximum duration of one minute.

Before now, WhatsApp users were limited to sharing 30-second voice messages as status updates, often requiring them to split longer messages into multiple parts. This new feature will allow users to share their thoughts, ideas, and emotions in a more comprehensive and engaging way.

The voice status update feature will be made available on both Android and iOS platforms and can be accessed by updating to the latest version of the app. To use this feature, users simply need to open the app, go to the status tab, and record their voice message. They can then add text, emojis, or other media to complement their voice update, making it more engaging and interactive.

Without any doubt, this feature is a significant addition to WhatsApp’s existing features, including text, image, and video status updates. It offers users a new way to express themselves, share their experiences, and connect with others in a more personal and intimate way. Whether you want to share a funny joke, a motivational quote, a personal story, or begin your podcast journey, the voice status update feature makes it is easy and convenient.

With the ability to share longer voice messages, users may be more keen to use WhatsApp as a platform for self-expression and creativity, rather than just a means of communication.

As I come to a close, the new voice status update feature is a welcome development to the platform, it will offer users more creative freedom and flexibility in how they express themselves. With its ease of use and engaging format, this feature is set to improve the way users interact with each other on WhatsApp.
