Months after bringing onboard the ability to preview voice note before sending, the Meta-owned company Whatsapp are now rolling out the anticipated background voice message playing globally. This is being spotted on WhatsApp iOS, and let iPhone users continue to listen to their voice messages even when they switch from one chat to another.
Normally, WhatsApp stops voice message playback when a user moves out of the chat in which they receive the particular message.
The feature allows voice messages to be played in the background so that users can listen to them directly from the chats screen of the app. In addition to WhatsApp for iOS, WhatsApp Business for iOS are currently working on advance Filters search that will make business more friendly and easy.
WABetaInfo has shared a screenshot to give us some details about the global voice message player. It shows that the voice message player appears on the top of the screen to let users continue to listen to their voice messages when switching from one chat to another.
Unfortunately, this feature is being distributed to some Whatsapp iOS beta tester. WABetaInfo notes that despite being on the latest beta version, there are chances that you might not be able to listen to your voice messages when you move to a different chat.
It is yet to be revealed on when the background voice message player will be available to the public for WhatsApp for iOS.
According to the report by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for iOS beta version 22.1.72 has introduced the background voice message player for some users. The feature is also said to be rolling out to some beta testers on WhatsApp Business for iOS version 22.1.72.
