New Delhi: WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to interrupt voice recordings midway. Unlike the current version, which requires users to speak without any lag, this will effectively allow users to transmit cleaner and shorter audio messages.
Users will not be forced to stop their current recording and start a new one with the new tool. The voice recording capability was first revealed in WhatsApp for iOS, but is now available in WhatsApp beta for Android as well. This development has not yet been confirmed by the Facebook-owned company.
According to a video released by the outlet, WhatsApp users will continue to record voice notes as before, but with a new pause button in the middle. Users can send voice notes by selecting the bottom right button. The Delete option is located in the lower left corner.

Meanwhile, the same site recently revealed that WhatsApp has started distributing end-to-end encrypted chat backups to a small group of beta testers. Facebook revealed the feature earlier this year, and it will allow users to choose between a 64-bit encryption key and a password-protected cloud-based key.
The information can be saved to Google Drive or iCloud, but it will be encrypted before it is uploaded. Users will be able to use the Facebook-owned instant chat service on multiple devices. WhatsApp has detailed how the multi-device functionality will work behind the scenes, especially in terms of security. According to the company, all devices will have the same level of end-to-end encryption and security. Also Read: ITR Filing FY 2020-21: File Your Tax Return Free Of Cost Using SBI YONO App; This way
However, following the global outages of WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook, the company has been criticized by users. It said there is a problem with its services that prevents users from accessing its social media sites. Several users were unable to load their Instagram feeds during last week’s outage, while others were unable to send messages using Facebook Messenger.
