WhatsApp’s voice message functionality has always been quite convenient to use, barring the fact that the message stops playing when you exit the chat. Now, according to Wabetainfo, the app is planning to rectify this issue by releasing a new update that allows the voice messages to play even when you exit the chat. The voice message will be shown at the top of the chats, and you can listen to it while scrolling through other messages.

Other WhatsApp Updates on the horizon

Additionally, according to Wabetainfo, Whatsapp is also testing a new disappearing messages feature and will be rolling out the update to their Beta users on iOS. Reports indicate that you can choose between three different time stamps – 24 hours, 7 days and 90 days – and the messages will disappear once the time is up. 

Both the updates are not available to Beta users at the moment, though some users are reporting that they can s;et timings for disappearing messages. This is mainly because Whatsapp allows you to set a default timing under its privacy settings – and this is a very rudimentary version of what the app is planning to offer.

What is WhatsApps Voice Messaging Feature?

Whatsapp has been tweaking its voice message functionality, adding features like altering playback time to the mix. Its global voice message player should make it easier for users to leverage this functionality without feeling restricted to a specific chatbox.

Whatsapp has many updates on the horizon, including one that might just negate all its privacy features! Keep an eye on our website to know more.
