In 2021, it rolled out many exciting features and significant updates, getting into controversies for some. Some beneficial features were: voice calling and video calling on desktop, disappearing photos, chat transfers from iOS to Android and many more.

It is constantly evolving, and guess what? It will soon roll out a new feature spotted by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo. Reportedly, the app will now allow users to listen to WhatsApp voice notes in the background. Voice messages are popular among the users of this messaging app. It means you can listen to voice notes even after switching to a different chat window. How is it different from the current feature?

Currently, if you listen to a particular voice message from a chat and leave the chat window, the audio stops. This feature will change. According to a screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, the new voice note playback interface will appear at the top along with buttons like a pop-up to pause, resume, or dismiss the voice note. A progress bar will also be present. iOS beta users found this feature a few days ago, and Android beta users recently spotted it.
