The Facebook-owned WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new update that’ll allow users to pause voice message recordings and fix a chat backup issue as well. The news comes after a report from WABetaInfo which claims that WhatsApp will release these new features for Android and iOS users. These new features are currently under development and therefore will likely launch a bit late for beta testers.
WhatsApp Update New Features: Pause Voice Recordings
The report also released a video showing how the new WhatsApp feature will work when released. While recording a voice message users will see a pause button allowing them to resume/pause the recording. The video shows an example of how the new features might work when released. Most likely, the new features will look and function a bit differently when officially released.
Fix WhatsApp Chat Backup
WABetaInfo also reported on a brand new feature that solves the problem of chat backup restoration stuck at 100%. A method originally found by the Reddit user (u/torojet), the new method allows the user to completely restore the WhatsApp chat backup.
Disconnect your WhatsApp account from your Google Drive
Uninstall WhatsApp and restore the latest database inside file manager to “mgstore. db” – don’t change the “. crypt” extension.
Reinstall Whatsapp and log in using the same mobile number
Now, the chat backup will restore using the local database
Link your WhatsApp and Google Drive account once again for future backup upload
