Voice Messages in WhatsApp Messenger Gets a New Animation

WhatsApp Messenger for IOS has got its new update with several added features, including the ability to disable receipts for them and some new animations for voice messages.

WhatsApp has upgraded its version to 2.21.40, which is now available on the App Store, but the change log doesn’t show what has been added. The update brought minor changes to WhatsApp. Last year, in November 2020 WhatsApp added the new disappearing texts function to IOS. However, the App Store is still not upgraded with the new change log for WhatsApp messenger. A study by WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo reveals that version 2.21.40 only brings a few minor improvements in the messaging services. The read receipt method for voice texts has also been changed in this update. If read receipts are switched off in WhatsApp for IOS, a contact who has sent the voice note or message will not be alerted when the user read or listen to it. By clicking the WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy, the user can switch off read receipts.

As per the reports of WABetaInfo, the new update is still not available for Android, hence it is not clear yet that whether WhatsApp will introduce it in Android or delete it from IOS in the upcoming updates. Last year, in November 2020, WhatsApp also added the disappearing text function to Android and IOS allowing users to remove WhatsApp texts after a fixed period of time – seven days in this case. Individual chats must be activated, which can be done on Android by going to the specific chat, tapping the menu icon on the top right, selecting Display touch, and turning on Disappearing messages. For IOS users it can be done by opening the chat, then by tapping on the profile icon and then by turning the disappearing text function on.
