WhatsApp today introduced a ton of many new features to enhance the experience of using its voice messaging option. These “voice notes,” or voice messages, are typically the preferred method of communication on WhatsApp.
The most noticeable update that just emerged from beta testing is out-of-chat playback, which allows users to listen to a voice message while doing other things. (you can play a voice message on a particular chat then navigate away from the chat and you will still continue to listen to the VM)
As soon as you start playing a voice note, a new voice message playback interface with stop, resume, and dismiss buttons, as well as a waveform representation and progress bar, displays at the top of the program.
With the new feature, you may stop an incoming call and resume listening when you return to the conversation. You can also listen to incoming calls at a speed of 1.5x or 2x to hear them more quickly on both normal and forwarded calls.
Finally, you may now stop and continue recording a voice message when ready, and listen to drafted previews of your voice messages before sending them.
WhatsApp has announced that the new voice messaging functionality will be sent out to all of its users over the next several weeks.
