The Meta-owned platform, WhatsApp has a huge user base and Android users are a large part of it. Soon after announcing the latest features such as limit polls and the ability to send video messages for WhatsApp iOS, recently, WhatsApp is now working on a new feature for Android. Thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update available on Google Play Store, it has been discovered that WhatsApp is now developing a new feature called audio chats, available within your conversation.
A new waveforms icon will be added to the chat header which allows the users to initiate audio chats. Once this update is available for everyone, it can be a great introduction to a new way of conversing. There would be a red button for ending the ongoing calls and there appears to be some additional space available too.
“Since the waveform icon implies the capability of real-time audio visualization, it is plausible that the space above the chat header could be reserved for displaying audio waveforms: this would provide a minimalistic interface that allow users to view audio waveforms while navigating between their conversations.” Says WABetaInfo.
Unfortunately, there isn’t any official information available yet about this new feature, which is why its exact functionality may be unclear from the given description.
Audio chats are under development and they will be released in future updates of the app. Stay tuned to stay updated and connected with the latest news on our page.
