(Pocket-lint) – WhatsApp has a plethora of cool features, some of which are easy to find and others a little more hidden. One of our favorites is the ability to speed up vocal notes, because let’s face it, sometimes you need a story to tell a little faster, especially when you’re running out of time and your friend tells you what color of socks he’s wearing. Morning.
You can read all of our top WhatsApp tips in our separate feature, but here we’re focused on previewing a voice note before sending it – if only for that, you have to have the same listening experience as the recipient.
The Facebook-owned messaging service launched an update in early December 2021 that added the ability to check a voicemail message before sending it. It’s not very obvious how to do it, so we’ll tell you.
How to review a voice note on WhatsApp before sending it
You will need to make sure that you are using WhatsApp version 2.21.240 or later in order to review the voice notes before sending them. Go to the App Store or Google Play Store and make sure that WhatsApp is updated.
After that, follow these steps to listen to a voicemail message again before sending it:
- Open the chat with the person to whom you want to send a voice note
- Tap the microphone record button in the lower right corner of the message entry field
- Slide your thumb up to record your hands-free voice note
- A stop button will appear at the bottom of your screen, tap it
- This will pause the voice note and preview the voice note
- Tap the play button next to the voice note to listen to the voice note again
- Tap the trash can icon at the bottom left to delete it
- Or tap the blue arrow icon at the bottom right to send your voice note
It should be noted that once you press the stop button and the voice note preview appears, you cannot continue where you left off or change it. You can either send or delete it. If you want to continue the voice note, you will have to start over.
