WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, is apparently testing a new global voice note player for iOS that will let users to listen to a voice message while in another chat.
The audio note that users are listening to will not be removed when they swipe back or start a separate chat, according to WABetainfo.
This feature will let users listen to voice notes even when they switch to a different chat.
This feature has been released to some iOS beta testers, including WhatsApp Business beta.
The feature is still under development for WhatsApp beta for Android and there is no news about the release date.
A recent report said that WhatsApp for iOS is planning to remove “Broadcast Lists” and “New Group” from the chats list in a future update.
There will be a new entry point for “Broadcast” within the contacts list, available when users tap the same button “Start New Chat” at the top right.
