Previous news? WhatsApp news of the week: notifications and communities

Exactly 3 months ago, we spotted a feature that allows listening to voice notes when you switch to a different chat (but not only), on WhatsApp beta for iOS, for a future update.
In the same article, we clarified that WhatsApp was also planning to introduce the same feature on the Android app, but there was no news at that time. Fortunately, we can finally show you something today: the ability to listen to voice notes everywhere is under development on WhatsApp beta for Android, for a future update!

As you can see in this screenshot, when you start listening to a voice note, and you go back to your chats list, WhatsApp shows up a new UI interface that includes the ability to pause, resume, dismiss the voice note, and a progress bar.
Unfortunately, this is another feature under development so it’s not ready right now. The global voice note player will be released to beta testers when it’s ready at a later date, so be sure to follow our next changelogs to discover when WhatsApp is rolling out the feature in a new update!
