WhatsApp Might Soon Allow Users to Pause Voice Recording

WhatsApp is without a doubt the most widely used personal messaging programme on the planet. With over a billion active users, the platform's developers are always working on new features and issue fixes. New features have recently been added to the platform, including end-to-end encryption conversation backup on iOS, multi-device support, WhatsApp Pay, and more. The company is now testing the ability to pause voice recordings.

The new option is called "Pause voice recordings," as discovered by WABetainfo. The functionality is still in development, however it will allow you to record your voice instead of sending many voice notes. For the time being, you must long-press the microphone button in the conversation to record a voice note, and after you release your finger, the voice note will be transmitted to the user.

The new update will allow you to pause voice recording, resume, and continue recording, allowing you to send a clear message all at once. Furthermore, you will not be forced to record several voice notes using this option. For individuals who utilise the voice recording capability frequently, it can be a very useful feature.

How does the Pause voice recording work?

As you can see in the image, once you've stopped recording your voice, the new WhatsApp feature will display a record button. By clicking the recording button again, you can resume the voice recording.

This feature was noticed on iOS during the development process, according to the article. However, the feature is likely to be made accessible for both Android and iOS Beta versions in the near future. Previously, WhatApp voice recording offered playback speed control options that allowed you to listen to the voice note at speeds of 1x, 1.5x, or 2x.
