Instant messaging app WhatsApp has announced that it has brought the long-awaited background audio message playback feature.
Instant messaging application WhatsApp, which is among the first choices of millions of people all over the world, continues to announce its innovations. Announcing that it has brought the ‘cover image‘ feature used on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook into practice for companies in the past few days, WhatsApp has now announced its new feature that has been expected for a while. With the new update of the application, voice messages can now be played in the background.
However, voice messages only worked in the chat window in the WhatsApp application, and users had to stop in the chat window to listen to the audio recordings. Unfortunately, some audio recordings were long, which was a problem. The background voicemail feature that many people have wanted for a long time has finally arrived.
With the development of technology, many people’s conversations shift to virtual environments, but of course, there are some problems. One of them is not being able to fully express the emotions to the other party in written messages. Although WhatsApp offers many options such as stickers, emoji, and gifs for this situation, one of the features that many people use the most is still voice messages.
