WhatsApp is beta testing the flexibility to ship voice messages that may solely be listened to as soon as by their meant recipient, WABetaInfo reports.
The characteristic, which is presently solely out there to a restricted variety of Android and iOS customers operating the beta model of the app, is reportedly accessible by tapping a small “1” icon that seems to the correct of the voice word waveform when recording. “After sending the voice note with the view once mode enabled, you won’t be able to listen to it and the recipient can no longer listen to the voice note after dismissing it,” WABetaInfo studies.
The Meta-owned messaging service already has the same “View Once” feature for photos and videos that it launched in 2021, so it is sensible it might broaden this to voice messages given their contents may be simply as delicate. I’m on the file as being a fan of voice messages, I believe they’re a pleasant manner of sharing a lot of information with somebody in a extra private manner with out having to do a lot of typing, so including a extra personal manner of utilizing the characteristic appears nice to me.
As with all these beta WhatsApp options, it’s unimaginable to say if and even when this would possibly get a wider rollout. Reports beforehand recommended WhatsApp was additionally planning on including “View Once” performance to textual content messages, however nearly a yr later the characteristic is but to reach. (WhatsApp already provides a separate disappearing messages feature that covers textual content messages.) A spokesperson for Meta declined to remark.
