WhatsApp starts rolling out a voice message preview feature
WhatsApp keeps on introducing new features as the year draws to an end. At the beginning of December, the messaging service started rolling out support for the Novi digital wallet, and began testing a new privacy feature that hides your "Last Seen" status from strangers. Now there’s yet another new functionality that’s slowly rolling out to users - voice message previews.

The new feature lets users check their recorded voice messages prior to sending them, in order to ensure nothing that everything is coherent and makes sense. This should be especially helpful in a number of situations, previewing your drunk Christmas voice DMs being one of them. But seriously, it’s a neat and useful feature that’s now rolling out to all platforms, including iOS, Android, web, and desktop.
There are more updates in the pipeline, and more interesting features waiting to be implemented in WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned messaging app is reportedly working on a voice transcription service that could potentially turn WhatsApp chats into full-fledged voice conversations.

Back in November, WhatsApp added the ability to pause voice messages, giving people a useful way to digest long conversations, and the service keeps on improving the options for disappearing messages, as well.
