But rather, you can continue listening while browsing other conversations.

In addition, another option that this update would offer, is that when leaving the chat a miniature player view would open. In this way, it is possible to navigate through the general chat room, in addition to the list of active users . While we are listening to the audio received via chat. In addition, it will be possible to record audio in hands-free mode, without having to hold down the record button, attached to an equalizer that shows voice waves.

Another novelty is a voice note player that would not be included in the chat that users normally use, this to be able to listen to them and control the audios when leaving the chat. This possibility of listening to them prior to shipment is one of the latest developments on the platform.

At the moment, without this update, the audios that we listen to in via chat, stop if we go to another conversation chat. This, until the update is available for all devices. To enjoy the update, users will be able to do it from the iOS version of WhatsApp, but beware, the function will be available as it is tested.
