WHATSAPP has rolled out a clever voice memo trick – and fans are raving about it.
If you’re a fan of voice messages, chances are you’ve been annoyed by a key design feature.
Previously it was only possible to listen to a voice message within a chat.
And if you leave this chat, the voice message will stop playing.
Now WhatsApp has optimized it so that voice playback is universal.
So if you’re listening to a voice message in a conversation, you can leave that chat and talk to someone else.
The voice memo continues to play in the background.
This is especially handy when a voice memo is quite long and you want to keep using WhatsApp without being tied to the same channel.
To get the new feature, make sure you have updated to the latest version of the app.
The trick was shared by TikTok star @tatechtips where it amassed over 2,000 likes.
If you want to get the latest WhatsApp features before everyone else, you can always join the WhatsApp beta.
Follow our guide below to find out how.
