Are you in the middle of a ten minute vowel and want to catch your breath? Or again, have you started a speech well but at the most beautiful you are bogged down and you have to clear your head, or someone or something forces you to interrupt (maybe some embarrassing voice that intrudes in the background)? These are all common scenarios, and they are just some of those that can lead to the cancellation of a voice message, to then restart the recording from the beginning.
Coming up on WhatsApp , however, there is a new function which promises this time to simplify not listening to vowels (as happened with the possibility of reproducing them at accelerated speed), but their registration. Like? Pausing it .
The function was already found in the code of the beta for iOS in October, and now the distribution has started both with version 2. 21. 230. 16 and with the 2.21 . 230. 13 of the beta for Apple smartphones.
At present, however, not all testers can benefit from this novelty, which for now is only available to a small group of users. Over time, availability will expand, and in the end the option will also land on the stable version of WhatsApp both for iOS, where the work is already started, and for Android, where it is not yet possible to observe a trace.
Images shared by WABetainfo , meanwhile, show us how it will work. And that is in a very simple intuitive way, with a pause button that will allow you to suspend the recording without canceling or trashing it . It is not clear at the moment whether there is a time limit for the duration of this suspension. To resume recording, simply tap the microphone icon, et voila. Those who in the iOS beta already see the graphic representation of sound waves during recording seem to have a better chance of obtaining this unprecedented possibility.
