WhatsApp has been found to be updating its platform’s existing voice messages feature with a global voice message player that will allow you to listen to voice messages when viewing your recent chats. At this time, the update is apparently being developed for beta testers. Separately, WhatsApp is said to have begun rolling out an improved Disappearing Messages feature that allows users to choose between disappearing duration of 24 hours, seven days, and 90 days. The update is now being tested by iOS beta testers.
WhatsApp Global Voice Message Player
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is currently testing an upgraded global voice message player. It will allow users to listen to voice messages received in a chat even after they leave that chat. This implies that your voice messages will be pinned to the top of the app’s home screen; allowing you to listen to a long audio message while browsing through your recent chats.
The global voice message feature is reported to be visible at all times; even when you move away from the chats screen and look at other parts of the app. It may be useful if you need to pause or dismiss a voice message.
WhatsApp Updated Disappearing Messages Feature
Aside from the global voice message player, WABetaInfo adds that WhatsApp is now testing an upgraded Disappearing Messages feature. It will allow you to pick between 24 hours, 90 days, and the standard seven days for disappearing messages. Last year, the Facebook-owned app included the option to have a message automatically deleted after seven days; however, some recent beta releases hinted that new durations are in the pipeline.
WhatsApp also has a Default Message Timer option in the app’s privacy settings, according to reports. It seems to allow users to choose an ephemeral duration that will be applied to all future messages.
Initially, certain beta testers using the latest WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business apps for iOS were reported to be testing an updated Disappearing Messages feature. It’s possible that Android beta testers will get access to it soon.
