WhatsApp’s new voice messaging features will be available to everyone soon.
WhatsApp first offered the option to transmit audio notes in 2013. Since its launch, there have been no significant modifications to the feature’s design or functioning. But that is about to change, as the instant messaging software has unveiled some new voice note features.
The option to play voice notes in the background is the most remarkable of the new capabilities. Previously, if you left the conversation while a voice message was playing, the playback would be interrupted. When you begin playing a voice message, you may now go to another chat, exit the app, or do other things without interfering with the playback.
Conversation Playback: Listen to a voice message while multitasking or reading and responding to other messages outside of the chat.
Pause/Resume Recording: If you’re recording a voice message, you may now pause it and continue it later if you’re interrupted or need to collect your thoughts.
Waveform Visualization: Displays a visual representation of the sound on the audio message to aid in listening comprehension.
Draft: Listen to your voice messages before submitting them as a draft. If you pause while listening to a voice message, you may resume your conversation where you left off when you return to the chat. Messages have been added.
Fast Playback on Forwarded Messages: Listen to voice messages at 1.5x or 2x speed on both normal and forwarded messages to listen to them faster
Preview audio messages before sending is useful if you need to make sure you are expressing the right idea.
The option to preview your audio messages before sending them is another handy feature. Before you tap the send button on a voice message, you’ll have the chance to listen to it. You may also pause and resume the voice recording whenever you’re ready.
