Six new features for voice messages on WhatsApp
Out of chat playback
With this feature, users can now listen to voice messages outside of the chat. This means that you can now multitask on your smartphone and also listen to the voice message you just received on the app.
Pause and resume recording
When recording a new voice message you can now pause the recording in between and then resume it when you are ready. The feature will allow users to communicate in a better manner.
This feature will show a visual representation of the sound of the voice message and will help users to follow the recording.
The feature enables users to listen to their own recorded voice messages before sending them.
In case you pause a voice message at the time of listening then you can resume from where you left off when you come back to the conversation.
Fast playback on forwarded messages
You can now play voice messages at 1.5x or 2x speeds and listen to them faster. The feature is applicable to both regular and forwarded voice messages.
WhatsApp will be rolling out these six new features to all its users in the coming weeks.
