WhatsApp is gradually introducing new features to make WhatsApp status updates more like Instagram Stories. However, it is still not possible to add music to the posts. At least not directly.
There’s a very simple trick to adding music to our status updates. The good news is that we do not install any additional app have to. On the other hand, the sound quality is not as good as Instagram’s music tags. Below we will show you how to do it step by step.
How to create a WhatsApp status with music
Steps to add music to WhatsApp status messages using a regular music player
To add music to your status messages, you just need a music player like Spotify, Musicolet or any other on your phone. He just has to Play music in the background a feature that most players already offer. Then follow these steps:
- Open your phone’s music player and select the song you want to play in the background.
- Open WhatsApp and go to the status tab.
- Tap the camera icon and, without stopping music playback, hold the round button to record a video.
- Lift your finger if you want to stop recording and crop the result before posting if you want.
The only “tricky” thing about this trick is that you have to be quick to match the part of the song you like best with the 15 seconds of recording time. However, you can cancel the status at any time and try again. When we are satisfied with the music video we can add a text before posting or even stickers in WhatsApp status.
