WhatsApp typically tests new features in the beta version of the app before releasing them to the general public.

Now the tech experts from WABetaInfo have spotted a new feature “in development” for the beta.

The change means you can share voice memos about your WhatsApp status updates.

“It will be possible to post a voice note of up to 30 seconds on your status updates directly with the text status,” explained WABetaInfo.

“Like a WhatsApp chat, if you don’t type text in this section, the microphone icon will appear. Otherwise, it means you go to a status update text as usual.”

Remember that according to your own privacy settings, your voice memo status updates are only visible to people who can see regular status updates.

Unfortunately, the feature isn’t currently available for testing, even in beta.

It’s in development, so a full live release could be weeks or even months away.

But it’s a good sign that WhatsApp is working to make voice memos even more important.
