SendVoiceStatus Test#

Beta version

The functionality is in beta mode. Features are subject to change and may also work unstably. There may be additional charges for functionality in the future.

The method is aimed for sending a voice status. The status will be added to the send queue. The status will be kept for 24 hours in the queue until instance will be authorized.
The rate at which statuses are sent from the queue is managed by Message sending delay parameter.

Important

In order for the recipient to see the sender’s statuses, both parties must save the numbers of the interlocutors to the contact list

The contact list is fetched using the GetContacts method based on the contactName field. To get an updated contact list, you need to rename a contact and re-authorize by rescanning the QR code.

Statuses are sent only to the first 1024 contacts from the GetContacts method with a valid contactName field.

Request#

To send a voice status, you have to execute a request at:

POST
{{apiUrl}}/waInstance{{idInstance}}/sendVoiceStatus/{{apiTokenInstance}}

For apiUrl, idInstance and apiTokenInstance request parameters, refer to Before you start section.
