Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Common questions Answers
Name of the feature? Global voice note player
Status? Rolling out
Compatibility? WhatsApp Messenger beta for iOS 22.1.72 and WhatsApp Business beta for iOS 22.1.72 are marked as compatible updates.
Android support? Unfortunately, there isn’t a release date for the activation of the feature on WhatsApp beta for Android, but it’s under development.
I’ve installed the latest beta but I don’t see the new global voice note player. Why? This feature has been rolled out to some beta testers, so the feature may not be available for everyone. Please wait for the next updates.
Thanks: mateusmarquezini and ismailhnd for testing and reporting.
Previous news? WhatsApp beta for Android what’s new?

Some months ago, we already talked about the global voice note player: a new feature that allows listening to voice notes when you switch to a different chat (but not only). The feature was under development on WhatsApp for iOS but there is news for some beta testers today: WhatsApp is finally rolling out the global voice note player on iOS beta!

As you can see in this screenshot, we’re listening to a voice note in the chats list: in fact, the voice note you’re listening to won’t be dismissed when you swipe back or open a different chat.
This feature has been released to some iOS beta testers (including WhatsApp Business beta) but, if you cannot listen to voice notes when you switch to a different chat, it means your WhatsApp account is not ready to let you test the feature: just wait for a future update that will release the feature for more users.
About WhatsApp beta for Android, as we have just said above, the feature is still under development and there is no news about the release date, but there will be an article when the feature is enabled for this platform.
