WhatsApp voice notes is pretty popular among users because it’s easier to send your messages when compared to typing . However, when you are listening to a voice note, you cannot switch to another chat because it will automatically end. That is about to change.
A WhatsApp update is coming that will allow users to listen to their voice notes everywhere called ‘Global Voice Note Player’. The feature was under development for select beta testers but now, WhatsApp is finally rolling out the global voice note player on Android and iOS beta.
How Does it Work?
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.
This feature will be 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.
The update is still in development and will be rolled out soon once development is completed.
