WhatsApp now makes it possible to share minute-long voice status updates

Meta's messaging platform WhatsApp is starting to roll out the ability to send minute-long voice status updates. Not to forget, the current version of WhatsApp allows you to share a 30-second voice status. However, a recent report from WABetaInfo shows that WhatsApp now has that with the latest update doubled the supported duration for speech statuswhich had the previous 30 second limitation.

Users can now share minute-long voice status updates with the latest version

The latest update is just an example of how Meta WhatsApp has been continuously improving for some time. The extended one-minute duration for voice status in WhatsApp has a number of practical benefits. With the new timing, you don't need to split your voice recording into multiple parts like before. Second, the extended duration allows you to communicate better without having to think about the timer running out.

WABetaInfo further adds that some WhatsApp users on Android and iOS can now set one-minute voice status updates. However, there seems to be a requirement for listening to such voice notes. You need to update WhatsApp to the latest version to hear the minute-long recording as a status.

The feature could be rolled out to more users soon

For the uninitiated, sharing one-minute voice status updates on WhatsApp is easy. First you need to open WhatsApp. Then go to the Updates tab in the bottom bar. Then tap the pencil-like icon and tap the microphone icon to record your one-minute voice. Finally, share it as a status update, as you did before when the limit was 30 seconds. It's worth noting that WhatsApp could soon expand the ability to share one-minute voice status updates to more users in the coming days, so watch out.

Overall, the longer duration of voice status recording will allow users to share their messages uninterruptedly and clearly. Not to forget, in another effort to make the messaging app more interesting to users, Meta is reportedly working on bringing AI profile photos to WhatsApp soon.
