How to put music on WhatsApp Status | Social networks

Putting music in the Status of WhatsApp Status is not as simple as in Stories on Instagram and Facebook. That’s because, unlike social media, the messaging app doesn’t have a native sticker for adding music. WhatsApp only allows you to insert stickers, emojis, phrases or drawings in the content that will be posted.

Step 2. On iPhone, the screen can be recorded natively, without using external apps. Just open the control center and tap on the ball located at the bottom of the screen. On Android devices, you will need to use third-party apps, but the rest of the process is essentially the same. After starting recording, go back to the player, and when you’ve filmed some of the music you want, return to the control center or external app and pause recording.
