Check out WhatsApp’s newest feature, which will make listening to voice notes more convenient.

WhatsApp is gradually becoming more feature-rich. And the voice notes option has quickly become one of the most useful features of the popular messaging service. The audio notes provided to you via WhatsApp, on the other hand, can only be played while the chat in which you received them is still active. That is about to change.

According to reports, WhatsApp will soon allow users to play voice notes in the background. This will allow you to play a voice note while also exiting that particular chat window. The voice note can then be heard by users while they are checking or reacting to other chats or group conversations.

The tip comes from WABetaInfo, however, we don’t know if you’ll be able to play voice notes and then exit the app, or if the voice notes will only play as long as you have WhatsApp open.

When you play a voice note while exploring the rest of the app, a new playing bar appears above your primary WhatsApp screen. Check out the leaked screenshot below.

The functionality has yet to be published and may take some time to reach your phone, as it has not yet reached WhatsApp Beta users on either Android or iOS. As a result, a stable update to Android and iOS phones may take longer to arrive.
