WhatsApp let you listen to voice message while in a different chat. WhatsApp was working on a worldwide voice messaging player for its app a few months ago.
This functionality is finally being rolled out to users with the current beta.
This feature, according to WABetaInfo, will allow you to listen to voice notes even if you go to another conversation.
So, if you’re listening to a friend’s voice message and another person sends you a text, you may switch to the other conversation and respond to the other person at the same time.
What has changed since October is that WhatsApp is still developing this feature, but beta testers may now check it out if they are using version 22.1.72 of the app.
WhatsApp has also modified the player’s appearance over the last few months.
The voice message will display on the top of the app, with a play/pause button, the name of your contact, and a close button to dismiss the message, as shown in the picture below.
Because this worldwide voice message player is releasing today, some users may not be able to check it out right once, according to WABetainfo. WhatsApp often rolls out new features in stages.
Unfortunately, it’s yet unclear when this feature will be available to all users in the stable version of the program, but it shouldn’t be long.
In the previous beta version of WhatsApp, the app started to revamp its chat list page with a clearer design by removing the “Broadcast Lists” and “New Group” options.
Not only that but the app is designed to display your contacts’ profile images in alerts anytime they send you a message in the future.
When you receive a new notification on WhatsApp, the name of the person as well as their profile picture will show.
Last but not least, WhatsApp needs to know whether someone in a group conversation reacted or referenced you.
For example, if someone answers to you in a group, you will receive a message that someone has answered you.
WhatsApp now recognizes when you are referenced in a group discussion, according to the latest beta version.
