WhatsApp does not stop implementing new functions on its platform. The latest announcements regarding reactions to messages will now be added audio improvements, specially for listen to them before being sent to the recipient.
The person in charge of filtering the news that will arrive soon to the messenger comes once again from the site WABetainfo, the same that in recent months advanced the temporary messages or single viewing of photos and videos.
The new version of the voice notes that WhatsApp prepares does not compare with the current and it is quite complete. Itself is a small evolution of the locked recording mode, which is activated by sliding the record icon up to record in hands-free mode.

When activating this mode, WhatsApp will display the content of the message in the form of sound wavesor, a trash button (to delete the note), a button to stop recording (the central square) and the send button.
However, what is most striking is that at the end of recording the user will be able to listen to the voice memo before sending it. Without needing homemade tricks nor third-party applications.
When this function is already available, in addition, you can not only review the audio, but also scroll through it sliding your finger across the wave chart as in any audio editor. This is quite useful especially for listening to a specific part.
The “new voice notes” is currently available in beta versions; Although they still do not have an official date to start using it in the stable version of cell phones with iOS and Android.
WhatsApp on tablets
On the other hand, the messenger prepares the feature known as multi-device 2.0, which will allow new equipment to be linked to a mobile phone and which for the first time represents the arrival of a specific app for tablets.
The specialized portal WABetaInfo reported on the latest developments WhatsApp is working on as part of its new 2.0 multi-device mode, with which users can link Android and iPad tablets.

This tool, still under development, allows for the first time the operation of the messaging app on tablets without using its web version, but through a specific app for these devices.
WABetaInfo also revealed that the WhatsApp tablet application will work independently, and that users using the beta of the iOS mobile app will automatically receive the new version in the future.
Reactions with emojis
The messaging application began to develop a new widely recognized function on social networks -Instagram, Facebook or TikTok-, so that its users can react to other people’s chat messages and files through emojis.
Reactions are a function already available in different messaging applications and social networks, such as Instagram, Twitter, iMessage. The user can choose an emoji as a reaction to a message, image or other content, and this is also shown to the sender.
It is still too early to know in detail when we can have this new update of the application, so More information about this will most likely appear in the coming weeks..
