WhatsApp has recently released a new update that lets you check if your screams mean something vague before imposing it on others. If the app you are using is an updated one, then nothing has to be further done to avail of the feature. The Meta-owned messaging service said that the feature has been slowly rolling out in recent weeks and that it’s now available across all platforms including iOS, Android, web, and desktop. WhatsApp voice messages can now be previewed before sending them to your chats.
The steps involved in using the update to preview your voice notes before sending them to others is simple and is listed here:
- Open the WhatsApp chat which you like to send voice messages.
- Press and hold the voice microphone icon.
- option to preview a voice message appears after you press the stop button to finish a recording.
- You can then preview it with the triangular play icon
- Delete it with the trash can icon, or send it with the send button.
Earlier, the service added the ability to adjust the playback speed of voice notes during listening (perfect for quickly getting through long and rambling messages), and WABetaInfo reports that it’ll also soon be possible to pause and resume recording of a voice message.
In September, WhatsApp confirmed it was in the early stages of developing a new voice transcription feature that could one day allow you to read a transcription of a voice message rather than listen to it. Then, in October, WABetaInfo reported that it had also found signs of a “global voice message player” feature that would let users listen to voice notes while browsing other WhatsApp chats.
The updated voice preview feature is now rolling out and users eagerly wait to see the next feature by the instant messaging app.
