Yo WhatsApp has quickly become the messaging app of choice for over 1.6 billion consumers worldwide. It’s a fast, easy, and convenient way for family and friends to chat, create group texts, share photos and videos, send and receive documents, and have private, secure conversations on the go.
Yo WhatsApp makes voice messages more exciting
Voice messaging is essentially an audio experience — but that’s something Yo WhatsApp is looking to change. When you get a voice message from a contact (or, actually, if you send it yourself), you’ll get used to seeing a progress bar during playback.
It’s a handy visual aid to help you understand how long a message is and what to listen to. But now the feature has gotten some upgrades to make it more visually appealing, thanks to speech waveforms.
We’ve seen Yo WhatsApp play around with waveforms before, and Android users who signed up for the beta program got a sneak peek at the feature. But that’s just a fleeting glimpse, as the speech waveform is quickly disabled without any explanation
However, they seem to be back. The fact that a new visual accompaniment to voice messages is now available to iOS and Android beta testers (but still only beta testers) may indicate that the feature is almost complete and ready for wider deployment. But what’s all the fuss about?
sound and vision
On the one hand, these are just nice animations to watch while you listen to incoming messages. On the other hand, they are useful visual tools to provide reassurance when there is a period of silence in a message; if there is no activity in the waveform, you can safely assume that there is no sound to hear, not your speakers…or ears something wrong.
As is the case with Yo WhatsApp , although this new feature is being made available to beta testers, it won’t necessarily be available to all beta testers right away. This is server-side controlled stuff, so while it’s definitely a good idea to make sure you have the latest version of the app installed, unfortunately there’s no guarantee that speech waveforms are now accessible.
WABetaInfo reports that Yo WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 and Yo WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 are compatible with the feature, so make sure you have one of these installed to best try the new feature.
