The global voice note feature is now rolling out in beta version; soon, it will be available for the public desktop app. With this update, users will easily control the chat and voice player without switching back to chat.
With this feature, users can listen to voice messages anywhere in the app, even if you are playing something or have opened another chat window.
According to WaBetaInfo,
“When we play the voice note, and we switch to another conversation, WhatsApp does not stop playing the voice note, and a new audio player bar shows up at the bottom of your chats list.”
The screenshots shared by WABetaInfo shows that we can play voice note and, at the same time, can switch to a different chat. The app will not stop playing the voice note, instead, a new audio player bar will be shown at the bottom of your chats list.
With the player bar, one can control the voice note by using the playback button; also, the progress bar shows when the voice note ends.
At present, the feature is available to all beta testers, so if you want to try it out now, make sure you are using the latest Whatsapp desktop beta.
