WhatsApp to allow users to pause voice recording for shorter, clearer messages? Read details
The new feature does not need users to stop their current recording and begin a new one. The voice recording function first emerged in WhatsApp for iOS, but it is now available in WhatsApp beta for Android.
WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that would allow users to pause voice recordings in between. In contrast to the present version, which requires users to talk without gaps, it will effectively send cleaner and shorter audio messages. The new feature does not need users to stop their current recording and begin a new one. The voice recording function first emerged in WhatsApp for iOS, but it is now available in WhatsApp beta for Android. This development has yet to be confirmed by the Facebook-owned corporation.
According to reports, WhatsApp users will continue to record voice notes in the same manner as before, but there will be a new button in the centre to halt recording. Users may submit the voice note by selecting the button in the bottom right corner. The delete option is located at the bottom left corner.
Meanwhile, the same magazine recently revealed that WhatsApp has begun to push out end-to-end encrypted conversation backups to a small group of beta testers. Facebook announced the functionality earlier this year, and users would be able to select between a 64-bit encryption key and a cloud-based key with a password.
The data can be saved in Google Drive or iCloud, but it will be encrypted before uploading. Users will now be able to use the Facebook-owned instant messaging service on different devices. WhatsApp recently revealed how multi-device functionality would operate behind the scenes, particularly in terms of security. According to the firm, all devices would receive the same level of end-to-end encryption and protection.
However, consumers have chastised the business following a global outage of WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook. It stated there is an issue with their servers, which is not enabling users to access its social networking site. Many users were unable to load their Instagram feeds during the outage last week, while others could not send messages using Facebook Messenger.
