WhatsApp has introduced Voice Messages for users across platforms that will allow users to send recorded messages to their contacts. The company announced the availability of this new feature while announcing that it has now hit the 300 million monthly active users mark.
You can record and send voice clips with one press of the mic icon. If you decide not to send the message then you just swipe to the left to delete the recording. There is no time length limit when recording a message therefore users can get as creative as they want. Another interesting feature is that the playback of a voice text will automatically switch from handset’s speakers to its earpiece when the device is held to your ear. The mic icon also turns blue when recipients have listened to the message .
Facebook and WeChat already had this voice texting feature, but this one press voice text feature in WhatsApp seems to be interesting.
