You may never have to type a WhatsApp message with a bizarre new idea ever again

WHATSAPP is working on a bizarre new messaging system that works with smart glasses.

It would mean you dictate texts aloud to the specialists – which would then be sent to friends.

The big change was discovered hidden in the WhatsApp beta code.

This is the trial version of WhatsApp used by app fans who want to test new features first.

Tech sleuths at XDA Developers discovered clues to the app’s hidden feature.

The feature is linked to Ray-Ban Stories – smart glasses developed by WhatsApp owner Facebook.

Ray-Ban Stories eyewear was launched last year – and designed to film things you see.

Designed by Ray-Ban for Facebook, the stylish glasses can upload shots to social media to share with friends.

Thanks to the integrated 5 megapixel cameras, you can take both photos and videos with the glasses.

And three microphones also make it possible to answer phone calls.

Videos are recorded in 1184 x 1184 resolution at 30 frames per second – with a field of view of 105 degrees.

And you can record clips up to 30 seconds long.

You can also take 2592 x 1944 pixel photos if you prefer.

The camera is activated at the push of a button or by voice command “Hey Facebook”.

On-device storage has room for 35 videos and up to 500 photos, but you can offload those to the new Facebook View app in seconds and simply share the device for reuse.

And with the new WhatsApp feature, you could send texts with just one voice command.

Unfortunately, it is not clear when exactly this feature will be launched.

WhatsApp could develop it for weeks, months or even years.

And it’s entirely possible that the feature will be deprecated before launch.

How to get WhatsApp beta

To download WhatsApp Beta for your smartphone, you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.

Scroll down the page until you see “Become a Beta Tester”.

Tap the “I’m in” button, then tap “Join” to confirm.

Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.

Participating in the WhatsApp beta on iPhone is more difficult and has a limited capacity.
