Looking for a way to preview WhatsApp voice messages before sending them? WhatsApp this week rolled out a preview voice message feature, so that users can review drafts of their audio recordings before sharing them with others. You can preview your voice messages before sending them in individual threads or group chats. The update helps you avoid sending a voice message that is completely incomprehensible or needs an update with some improvement. You can play back your voice message before sending to see if your audio is clear.
In this article, we provide you the necessary steps to preview your WhatsApp voice messages before sending them to your contacts.
How to use WhatsApp Voice Message Preview
Before getting started with the steps to use the voice message preview feature, make sure you have the latest WhatsApp version on your device.
Open an individual or group chat on WhatsApp.
Tap and hold the microphone button next to the message textbox, and then slide up to lock hands-free recording. On the web and desktop versions of WhatsApp, you don’t need to slide up as both offer hands-free recording once you click on the microphone.
Now, start speaking your voice message.
Tap the Stop button to end recording.
Press the play button to listen to your recording. You can also go to a specific part of your recording by tapping the search bar.
You can hit the send button if your message is suitable and ready to be shared. Otherwise, tap the Trash can to delete your voice message and repeat the above steps to record one again.
