The definitive trick to put music on WhatsApp status
Until the arrival of music in Spotify Stories, the trick to put music in WhatsApp status was widely used by members of the social network. The first thing you need is have a music player installed. It serves both Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, or any other music streaming service as a local music player.

- Go back to WhatsApp and press and hold the button at the bottom center to start recording a video.
- When you’re done, take your finger off the button.
That is all. As you will see in the video preview, the mobile will have captured the background music and will be heard in the state. The rest of the people who see your status will also be able to listen to the song.

Despite this, the quality should be more than adequate. Another trick associated with this function is to leave the mobile on a table or completely flat surface with the camera pointing down before you start recording. With this, you will get a totally black image, as if we had uploaded a photo in a vertical format to the state.
