Snapchat and Instagram, two popular social media platforms, allow users to create stories with music. Similarly, you can include music in your WhatsApp status. Unfortunately, you cannot simply add it. Use your smartphone’s built-in audio player or video editing app. The WABetaInfo source states that WhatsApp will soon roll out an update that will allow users to post voice notes on their status updates.
