WhatsApp enables ‘playback’

Encrypted messaging service WhatsApp has released a new beta update for iOS users, which enables the audio playback feature in notifications.

According to WaBetaInfo, the new feature is work in progress and it is available only to a few users now.

In order to use the audio playback feature, a user needs to update WhatsApp to the beta version from TestFlight. The audio playback in notifications is reportedly working for both voice messages and audio files.

When a user sends a voice message or audio file, the notification on receiver’s end comes with the audio playback UI.

As per WaBetaInfo, for a user, the notification playback is active either only for voice message or only for audio files. Playback is active if last digit of your number is odd.
