WhatsApp may not be the best at syncing call logs, but it is one of the most popular encrypted messaging services. It picked up ephemeral media-sharing features from the likes of Snapchat and other Meta-owned companies years ago. Options include disappearing messages, view-once media, and status updates shared with your contact list. However, people have been rather limited in the kinds of media they can share as status updates. WhatsApp is now one step closer to allowing users to share voice messages as status updates.
