|Previous news?||WhatsApp is rolling out new features for disappearing messages|
After releasing the feature that allows listening to voice messages using different playback speeds, WhatsApp is focusing on new features for voice messages again.
Today we want to announce something amazing: a global voice message player!
The global voice message player allows listening to voice messages when you leave chats. It’s called global because it’s pinned to the top of the application, it’s always visible when you open any section of the app and it’s possible to pause and dismiss the voice message at any time.
This feature is very useful when you receive a voice message having a long duration. In this case, you can continue sending messages to other contacts when you are listening to the voice message.
This feature was spotted during the development of WhatsApp beta for iOS (so it’s still not available), but WhatsApp is also planning to introduce the same feature on WhatsApp beta for Android as well, so be sure to follow us if you want to receive our updates when there is news!
Note that, seen that this feature is under development, WhatsApp may change the appearance of the global voice message player (colors, the interface) before the release, but we’re going to follow the development of the feature.
