WhatsApp: New function eliminates the biggest disadvantage of voice messages

WhatsApp is planning a really big change in Messenger that will actually have a positive effect on the use of voice messages. Especially when you get very long voice messages, the global player will make a big difference.

WhatsApp gets global voice message player

Update from January 11th, 2022: After the function was discovered about three months ago in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, it has now also appeared in the Android version. The global player for voice messages cannot yet be used, but the final version should not be long in coming. (Source: WABetaInfo)

Voice messages in WhatsApp are both a blessing and a curse. You're happy when you don't have to type a long message and can hear the other person's voice instead of having to read a long text. But sometimes the voice messages are so long that one would like to continue to use the messenger on the side. So far it has been the case that the voice message stops when you leave the chat window in which you are listening to the voice message and want to take a look at other chats. That is exactly what is changing now.

The WhatsApp experts at WABetaInfo have now found out that a big change is pending. With the global player for voice messages, you can start listening to voice messages in a chat and exit the chat window to browse other WhatsApp chats or groups. Meanwhile, a player is displayed above that allows voice messages to be controlled accordingly.

The new feature is especially useful when listening to very long voice messages. In WhatsApp you no longer have to stay in the chat window in which you listen to the message and you can continue to use WhatsApp. Leaving the messenger and continuing to listen to the voice message is already possible. Only in Messenger can you not move freely until now .
