WhatsApp Some users have reportedly started rolling out new voice note layouts. According to a report by WABetaInfo, the Facebook-owned platform has been working on a visual upgrade for some time. It was already available for Android And iOS Users, and with the latest beta updates the company is bringing the feature to desktop users. According to reports, WhatsApp desktop Beta testers can now see the voice waveform in the chat bubble. Some users will now see the voice waveform for voice notes if the feature is enabled for their WhatsApp account. However, the report specifically mentions that voice waveforms may not appear when receiving voice notes from someone who does not have the feature enabled.
Users will miss the voice waveform design in Voice Note if it is recorded using an older version of WhatsApp. The platform initially enabled the new voice note layout in WhatsApp Beta for Android 220.127.116.11 version, but it was disabled immediately after a new update. As mentioned above, Visual Upgrade is only available to selected desktop / web users but it is expected that it will be rolled out to more users in the upcoming updates.
WhatsApp is also working on a feature that will allow you to keep some of the disappearing messages in the chat for a long time. As per previous reports, the new Beta Update for Android mentions new disappearing message features. According to reports, if you have enabled disappearing messages, the feature will allow you to keep certain messages in the chat even after the message has expired.
