    WhatsApp status for iPhone users is set to change forever! A fancy new feature is all set to be rolled out. The instant messaging app is launching a new feature that will let iPhone users share voice notes as a status update in addition to photos, videos, GIFs, and text. However, there is a limit of only 30 seconds to share a voice message on status. Here's how to post a Voice note on WhatsApp status through your iPhone.

    • Open WhatsApp on your iPhone.
    • Now go to the ‘Status' tab which is located at the bottom of the screen.
    • You will find a floating pencil-icon button next to the “My Status” option in the top right corner. Tap on it.
    • To post a voice message, first, you will need to record it just like the way you do to send it in personal messages.
    • Simply tap the microphone icon in the bottom right corner and start recording your message by holding down the microphone icon.
    • However, you must note that you have a 30-second recording time limit.
    • Once you finish recording, release the button and listen to the voice message again.
    • No tap the send icon to share it on your WhatsApp Status.
