A few months ago, WhatsApp rolled out a very important feature that went unnoticed by many users. In December 2021, WhatsApp introduced a new voice message feature that could be very helpful to many users.

The update included a new feature that lets you preview the voice messages before sending them to other users. This simply means if you are using the latest version of WhatsApp, you will be able to preview your voice recordings (messages) before sending them to other users.

Sometimes, when we are in a hurry, we use WhatsApp’s voice message feature and end up recording unwanted sounds like traffic noises, incorrect words, etc. So, thanks to this new feature, users can now hear their voice messages before sending them.
