Because of this, the instant messaging platform is able to communicate status updates with certain users who have their privacy settings preset in a certain way. According to the screenshot, users have access to the feature that allows them to send audio notes within the text status section. The system would provide users the option to delete a recording before they share it with others. A voice note can be up to a maximum of thirty seconds in length. According to WABetaInfo, in order for users to hear voice notes that have been posted as status updates, they would need to update their version of WhatsApp.

According to WABetaInfo, voice notes that are distributed as status updates are encrypted end-to-end and will be deleted after twenty-four hours. In the next weeks, it is anticipated that the capability will become available to a greater number of people.
A conversation transfer tool is currently being developed for users of the platform, which will allow them to transfer their WhatsApp data to a new Android smartphone without having to use Google Drive. This is how it’s going to play out.
The new Android device will make the QR code accessible to the user. The transfer of the conversation history to the new Android device will begin after the QR code has been scanned. According to WABetaInfo, the feature is only available on Android devices at the present time.
This follows the recent revelation by WABetaInfo that WhatsApp is working on a camera option that will allow users to alternate between taking photos and recording videos. At this time, in order for users to record a video, they will need to tap and hold the camera button.
