WhatsApp is currently testing a new feature for iPhones that will essentially allow users to preview voice messages within the app before sending. It is like to be added for beta testing on Android as well, pretty soon.
As you know that the world’s largest messaging app, WhatsApp currently only allows users to preview videos and images before they share these with their friends and family. But there is no way to preview voice messages within the app. Now according to WABetaInfo, a renowned outlet for trawling through early editions of WhatsApp has posted a screenshot on Twitter revealing that unlike previous editions of WhatsApp that have forced users to open it to listen to a message, the new feature will allow users to interact with it.
WABetaInfo posted a screenshot of notification on Twitter which hints that a new feature is coming by which users could soon be able to listen to voice messages from within a notification without having to open WhatsApp itself. Meanwhile, another new feature will likely allow them to determine if the voice message that they have recorded, has been recorded correctly and if they want to share the message to the specific recipient or not.
It must be noted that the stable release date for the new feature is still unknown, however, WABetaInfo has speculated that WhatsApp will launch this feature with a bunch of other in next major update and iPhone users will get it when Apple releases iOS 13.
This is not the first time WhatsApp has focused on providing updates on notification and preview based features. Just recently, WhatsApp released a new feature on to its iOS-based app, which allowed the iPhone users to preview the stickers in the notification window.
