Updated What’s App Voice Messages! Here Are Six New Features

A new voice-messaging feature has been added to WhatsApp, the instant-messaging app. Users of WhatsApp now have more control over the voice messaging feature. They will be able to change speed, play outside the chat too, continue from where they left off, and more. Twitter-owned message sharing platform Meta confirmed via a tweet and a blog that it has added six new features for voice messages and they will roll out over the next few weeks. Find out what the WhatsApp voice message update means to you.

This feature of WhatsApp was introduced back in 2013 and has become an excellent means of communicating with friends and family. Chatting was easy and quick, and users were even able to express themselves better. The ability to share a story without typing it was really appreciated by those who would rather not type. Voice messages on WhatsApp are preferred over text messages in many cases. Users of WhatsApp send over 7 billion voice messages every day on average, according to WhatsApp. “All of which have been encrypted from end-to-end to ensure privacy and security,” WhatsApp’s blog stated.

New features for WhatsApp Voice messages

WhatsApp has added six new features to voice messages. The new features will become available to WhatsApp users in the next few weeks. Here is what you will be able to do with the new voice messaging features on WhatsApp:

1. Listening to voice messages out of chat: At the moment, you have to stay in the chat to listen to voice messages. A voice message can now be heard even if you are not in a chat. Multitasking has never been easier. Read other messages and reply while listening to a voice message.

2. You can now pause and resume recording a voice message while recording if you’re interrupted or you need to gather your thoughts, and resume the recording when you’re finished.

3. Visualization of waveforms: You’ll see a visual representation of the sound as you listen to the voice message.

4. You can now listen to your recording before you send it, as well as record, pause, and send the voice message draft. A long time has passed since this feature was discussed, and now it’s finally here!

5. Continue where you left off: Pick up where you left off! You can pick up from where you left off last time if you paused your voice message while listening.

6. On both regular and forwarded messages, you can listen to voice messages at different speeds, from 1.5 times to 2 times the normal speed, for a faster listening experience.
