Common questions Answers
Name of the feature? New progress bar animation, no played receipts
Status? Enabled.
I’ve the same version but I don’t see this news, why? The animation is available for iOS 13+ users.

WhatsApp has introduced a minor UI animation when a voice message ends, for the progress bar.

This animation is available on iOS 13 and newer versions.


In this update, if Read Receipts are disabled in WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy, the recipient won’t be notified when you play his voice messages. We don’t know if WhatsApp will restore the old behavior in the next updates (because they didn’t implement this change in the Android version yet), but at the moment the situation is so.
