WhatsApp to roll out Voice Notes pause and resume feature for Windows beta app


WhatsApp is about to roll out Pause and Resume Voice Notes for their Windows beta app which has already been implemented on iOS and Android.

“WhatsApp is now rolling out the ability to pause and resume Voice Notes on the Universal Windows Platform beta app,” according to the WABetaInfo report.

This feature is available after installing update 2.2223.11.70 from Microsoft Store and it has been released for all beta users.

Earlier on June 15, WhatsApp had released WhatsApp for Windows beta update 2.2223.11.70 which brings message reactions to everyone.

Apart from that, WhatsApp had also started working last year on a new privacy setting that would allow users to hide their “profile pictures”, “last seen” and “about” from specific people in their lists of contacts.

Its availability was limited like during the beta period, but the company has announced that it will finally be available to all its users worldwide on iPhone and Android devices.

Until now, users had three privacy options for profile picture, last seen and about information – Everyone, My Contacts and Nobody. These are joined by a fourth option called “My contacts except…” which is also available for status privacy, according to GSM Arena.

The new option allows users to view their WhatsApp profile picture, last seen, and information about people in their contact list, except those they wish to exclude.

However, it should be noted that if someone does not share their last seen with the others, they will also not be able to see the others, just like the read receipts, with the only difference that the latter will always remain active for the group chats, even though they turned it off.

One can head to the Settings > Account > Privacy menu of WhatsApp on iPhone and Android devices to try out this new privacy control.

Along with rolling out a new privacy control, WhatsApp also announced some group call features, allowing users to mute others in a group call and send messages to specific people. You can also see a banner when someone joins an off-screen group call.
