WhatsApp is undoubtedly the world’s most famous instant messaging app. While the app gives a great user interface and some fantastic features, there are certain flaws in its UI. One of the most notable flaws that users have faced for a very long time is the way WhatsApp manages voice notes.
Currently, WhatsApp requires you to continually hold down on the mic button until the time you want to send your voice message. While that’s not much of a problem for long voice notes, it inevitably does become a bit of an annoyance to continually hold on to the button while sending long voice notes or messages. Thankfully though, WhatsApp is all set to replace it.
As reported by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on an innovative implementation of voice messages recording functionality that will allow people to navigate inside the chatbox even when they are recording a voice message, without holding down on the mic button. Once you start recording a voice note, after 0.5 seconds, WhatsApp will automatically show you a new UI for the microphone button. You can simply swipe up your finger in order to enable the “lock” for the voice notes. Catch a look at the GIF below for a better understanding:
As such, the feature is still under development. While there seem to be certain bugs in the feature, it will be made available to everyone in the future updates when it is finally stable. What do you think of this new UI? Let us know in the comments down below?
