WhatsApp Voice Notes Can Be Played in Background?

The report comes from WABetaInfo, but we still don’t know if it will allow you to play voice notes and exit the app entirely, or whether the voice notes will play only as long as you still have the app open. The feature was spotted on iOS beta three months ago. It was later seen on Android updates as well. However, the features’ tracker has finally spotted the feature again and shared the screenshot of how it looks.

On a related note, WhatsApp will remove the broadcast list and new group options. As per WhatsApp features tracker Wabetainfo, WhatsApp will only keep the Archived list at the top of the chat screen and will remove the Broadcast List and New Group. “WhatsApp is planning to make the chats list very clean and to do that, they need to remove certain UI elements. In particular, they are planning to remove the row where you can open your broadcast lists and create new groups,” the report said.
