WhatsApp has released yet another Beta update, this time for iOS users. Yes, the new WhatsApp Beta update is now available which brings a new Audio Playback support in Notifications for iOS devices.
According to a report by a popular WhatsApp Beta Tracker WABetaInfo, the messaging giant has silently rolled out the beta update for iOS devices. We have already heard about this feature in the past which is now making its way to the public.
The Audio Playback support was found in the latest iOS beta 126.96.36.199 beta version. This feature works with Audio files and voice messages that you send using the app’s built-in Voice Notes feature. This update is available for the beta testers only.
To test out this new update of WhatsApp, you need to get the latest Whatsapp 188.8.131.52 version installed on your iOS device. The updated Beta edition can be installed from the TestFlight which will bring the Audio Playback capability in the Notification panel.
For quick results, update the app and ask your friend to send a voice message or an audio file. You will receive a notification which lets you play the audio file within the notification center without opening the WhatsApp application.
The reports also claim that the new WhatsApp Beta has been made available to a few users only and this feature is currently live on a limited number of iOS devices. They will expand the number of users to test out this feature in the coming days. The beta tracker also said that the same feature is now available for the Business Profiles.
Before trying out this new app, make sure you take backup of your Chat history and media files. If you have already updated the app to its latest version and couldn’t see this new feature on your device, then you need to reinstall the app again.
You can also reply to the recipient within the Notification Center while playing an audio file sent by your friend. Since the iOS platform has many limitations, WhatsApp is trying hard to get new features for its iOS users.
