WhatsApp update adds new features for iPhone users
WhatsApp is testing a lot of features before bringing them to the general public, and many times we report on these improvements if they're newsworthy. Today, we have news about another update that all iPhone users should be able to get via the App Store.

The most important change is the ability to play voice messages directly from notifications. This can be done by long-pressing and tapping play. Also, WhatsApp users will now be able to change font styles in the camera by tapping the T icon.

Furthermore, the latest version of WhatsApp for iOS allows users to quickly edit and send back media in their chats. Simply tap the doodle icon when viewing an image or video and should be on the right track.

Last but not least, memoji can now be sent as stickers from the emoji keyboard on iOS 13. To benefit from all these changes mentioned above, make sure your WhatsApp app is updated to version 2.19.100.

About voice messaging, this might be new tip for someone. If you think the voice message is only for your ears, raise the phone to your ear right away when you play the Message and it would play the audio from ear speaker instead from speakers so only you will hear it.

I think we've all discovered this by accident ages ago. I hope playing from notification comes to android.

I don't like whatsapp on iOS. Whenever I start using both devices (iOS and android), whatsapp is definitely residing on the android device.
