Are the people that work on WhatsApp updates actually people? Or are they robots way more advanced than everyone thought? Either way, who- or whatever is behind them doesn’t get much sleep.
The messaging service’s most recent update wants to make your life easier if you constantly send voice notes through the app. For those that do, it is almost a certainty that you’ve sent a voice note without meaning to, or halfway through a sentence or when you’re inaudible or… you get the idea.
Thanks, WhatsApp update team. Take a break now
All of that is now a thing of the past, theoretically. WhatsApp has now added a way for you to preview voice notes before you send them. By default, voice notes will still send after you release the record button but if you’re still holding down the record button in 2021 then we feel for you. Here’s how you can make use of the new feature.
After starting the voice note recording, sliding the button up will lock recording to the ‘on’ position allowing you to record ‘hands-free’. This is demonstrated nicely with the padlock icon.
After the update, you’re presented with two options. You can either delete the recording right there or hit the ‘play’ button to listen back to yourself. It would be nice if you could set this as default but baby steps, we guess.
You won’t be able to start recording again after you stopped. That may or may not be coming later. But at least now if you aren’t happy with the way you said ‘antidisestablishmentarianism’ you can start over.
