The Meta-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp has released a new feature that lets users share voice notes as their status. For those catching up, WhatsApp status updates are like Instagram stories. They are pictures or videos that are available on one’s profile for 24 hours.

Previously, users could add 30-second-long voice recordings as their WhatsApp status. However, the new update increases the limit to a minute. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is rolling out the feature to all users (on Android and iOS). To access it, consider updating WhatsApp on your phone to the latest version via the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
