Recently it was reported that WhatsApp is going to have a new feature in Android. It is learned that the Global Voice Messaging feature on WhatsApp is currently being tested. This is a feature that allows WhatsApp users to continue listening to voice messages even if they switch from one chat to another. This instant messaging app currently turns off the feature of playing a voice message when a user leaves that chat and moves to another chat. In that case, if the specific message is not in the chat, the voice message is turned off. The WhatsApp messaging feature is expected to allow playback via WhatsApp updates. Over the past few months, WhatsApp has expanded its voice messaging experience to make it more reliable for its users to use the platform.
According to a recent report by WhatsApp Beta Tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for the global beta version 220.127.116.11 mentions the feature of global voice messaging. This feature, however, has not yet been made available to beta testers.
WABetaInfo shared a screenshot for more information on the feature. It features an audio player interface that allows pauses, resumes and stops the voice message at the top of the chat list. The screenshot also shows that there is a progress bar to show the movement of the audio.
Users will also hear voice messages for this new feature when they move to the default chat screen. In addition to Android, iOS users are expected to get the same service. WABetaInfo suggested introducing this feature on Apple’s platform in October last year.
However, it is not yet known exactly when WhatsApp will take advantage of this advanced voice messaging feature. It is not clear when the feature will be available for beta testers on both Android and iOS platforms.
Last month, WhatsApp introduced a voice message preview feature that allows users to listen to recordings before sending messages to their contacts. It is very useful for sending voice messages and it is hoped that this feature will further enhance Playback Speed Support.
