Whatsapp Upcoming New Features For Billions Of Users: This Will Change User Behavior, Productivity?
- WABetaInfo the WhatsApp tracker revealed that the app will add the pause or resume voice recording feature to its latest Android beta version 188.8.131.52.
WhatsApp keeps adding new features to enhance user experience on its app. The Meta-owned messaging app is currently said to be working on a feature that will allow users to pause and resume audio while recording voice notes.
The record audio update
According to reports, this feature has already been released for beta testers on Android. WABetaInfo, the avid WhatsApp tracker revealed that the app is going to be adding the pause or resume voice recording feature to its latest Android beta version 184.108.40.206. The record feature only allows users to stop recording a voice note. However, the new update will apparently expand the functionality and enable pausing a voice note in the middle of the recording and resume it again by tapping the mic icon at the center when the user is ready. Supposedly, the feature will be available on WhatsApp Business for the Android beta version as well.
“If you don’t see the new pause and resume feature while recording voice notes, it means your WhatsApp account is not ready. In this case, you will receive the feature when a future update is released, because WhatsApp is used to releasing it day by day,” the outlet mentions.
Many other features will be updated
This news aside, Whatsapp has also been spotted testing lots of other features which are expected to be revealed in the coming days.
According to reports, WhatsApp may have a new Communities section soon which is going to replace the camera section on the app. The messaging app is also said to be working on a feature to allow users to create links for joining calls on WhatsApp. A new interface for voice calls, previewing photos, videos shared, search shortcut in contact information section are a bunch of features that are expected to be included in the app soon.
While WhatsApp is quite secretive about its new features, beta updates seemingly indicate the features to be rolled out to the public following the fixes.
