rumors about The WhatsApp Getting the ability to pause and resume audio recording has been circulating on the Internet for more than a month. The feature has not appeared anywhere until today.
A well-known informant, WABetaInfo, has reported that the feature is being launched for select WhatsApp Beta users on iOS with the latest WhatsApp Beta version.
According to the report, the pause feature for audio recording is being launched with WhatsApp for iOS 2.21230.16 beta. Some users are also reporting the feature with beta version 126.96.36.199.
As mentioned earlier, the feature is being implemented for some WhatsApp beta testers on iOS at the moment. The feature should be implemented soon in the latest version of the app as well. The Android version of the app should also receive the same feature at a later stage.
How does the audio recording pause feature work
According to a WABetaInfo report, the feature will also add a visual change to the audio recording option. If you are displaying a sound waveform while recording voice messages, then most likely the beta version of the app also has a pause function.
All you have to do is start an audio recording and look for the “Pause” button. Touching it will stop recording. The informant also mentioned that the audio recording could be resumed if someone paused it.
The only thing unknown at the moment is how long a person can pause the audio recording or whether it will be paused even if someone moves to another chat window.
The answers to these questions will be available once WhatsApp makes this feature permanent.
