WhatsApp voice messaging is about to get a whole lot better


Last updated: March 31st, 2022 at 11:51 UTC+02:00

On Wednesday, WhatsApp announced that it is bringing a bunch of new features to voice messages. These features will make it easier for users to make use of voice messages and communicate with their contacts on WhatsApp.

Notably, the company is introducing six major improvements to voice messaging support, aimed at making the overall voice messaging experience better.

The update includes the ability to pause or resume voice message recordings, waveform visualization of voice messages, out-of-chat playback, and draft preview (the last one was already available to some users).

Speaking of the out-of-chat playback feature, it lets you listen to the voice message outside of the chat it was sent in. This would allow users to respond to other chat messages on WhatsApp.

However, do note that the voice message will stop playing if you leave the WhatsApp app or switch over to a different application. Also, you will be able to pause or resume voice messages. This is a pretty handy tool that lets you resume your recording in case you were interrupted in between.

Other features involve the visualization of the voice message in a waveform. Previews are also added, letting you listen to your voice message before you send it to others. As before, you can also fast forward the voice messages by 1.5x and 2x.

Last but not the least, there is a resume playback option, which allows the users to start listening to the voice message from where they left off.

There is no exact date mentioned as to when Samsung and other Android users will get these features. But WhatsApp says that these updates will roll out in the next few weeks.
