If you’re an avid user of WhatsApp, then typing might not be the best way to chat with people all the time. Which is why you’ve got audio notes (doesn’t keep things private though), letting you record up to 15 minutes of chat and send them to a user.

And now, WhatsApp is making this feature even more useful, just in case someone sends you audio notes one after the other.

Previously, you would have to click on play for every audio note to listen to them, but with the new update for the app, you don’t have to do that anymore. It auto-plays notes one after the other. The feature is available with the update version 2.19.150 of the app, which is rolling out on both Android and iOS this week.

We tried out the feature and it does work as expected. However, we also observed that the audio notes need to be sent one after the other. So, if you send one audio note first, and then send a text message after that, followed by another audio note again, this feature will not work.

Audio notes are reliable and don’t get stored on your device. They are saved on the Google drive (gmail ID) you have signed up with. It doesn’t work with WhatsApp Web yet.

But more than this audio note feature, people are eagerly waiting for WhatsApp to get dark mode (or night mode maybe), which has been spotted running in the testing phase by tipsters on the internet like WABetainfo, who even shared screenshots like this a few weeks back.

WhatsApp is a popular app for messaging, with over 300 million users from India itself. The app runs on a host of devices other than Android and iOS, like the JioPhone from Reliance, which is an ultra-affordable 4G feature phone selling for under Rs 2,000 in the market.

Recently, reports pointed out that the so-called end-to-end encrypted platform ran into trouble with spyware entering through back door code, exposing data to hackers.
