WhatsApp will soon allow users to pause voice recordings

WhatsApp has been working hard to keep improving its user experience further with the introduction of a new features. It was recently revealed that instant messaging app will receive a feature to listen to voice messages globally, with different playback speeds. And now, WhatsApp Beta Info has published a new report about the ability to pause voice recordings.


According to a report wabetainfo, WhatsApp is said to be working on a feature that will allow users to pause voice messages while they’re recording them. The feature is useful because it will allow you to fit your message within a single voice message without forcing you to stop and record a new one.

As seen on the demo video below, there is a new pause button on the voice recording panel, tapping which the recording immediately comes to a halt. It can then very conveniently be resumed as well using the same button.

The WhatsApp pause voice recordings feature has currently only hit a few users on the app’s beta channel on iOS but a wider rollout for all beta users is expected soon. WhatsApp Beta Info has confirmed that the same feature for Android is in the works as well.

Recently, an APK teardown by XDA revealed that WhatsApp is also working on a new “Community” feature that will co-exist with the existing Group feature. XDA speculates that a community could possibly host several WhatsApp Groups within itself (or be the other way round), as well as be a dedicated Channel for admins to message. Posts within could possibly host threaded responses, not unlike the kind that Telegram allows in its channel posts.

This was as per WhatsApp’s latest beta, v2.21.21.6 that came with several new strings that point towards the upcoming Community feature.
