The instant messaging service WhatsApp prepares several surprises for users of its application on devices with the Android operating system.
The beta update 2.19.86 introduces the next features that are being developed by the 'app', including the ability to listen to several voice messages continuously and the new version of PiP mode, informs the WABetaInfo portal.
Consecutive voice messages
This new function will allow you to continuously play several voice messages received consecutively.
As noted by WABetaInfo, the function is activated when WhatsApp detects two (or more) messages. The application will play the recordings one after another and the user does not have to do anything.
In addition, the company has updated the mode 'image in image' or PiP ('Picture in Picture', in English) to view videos of the most popular services such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Streamable without having to leave the application. The function allows you to enjoy recording in a floating window and continue chatting.
While the old version did not change the chat without closing the video, in the update this will be possible. In addition, the portal says that in the new version you can see a video even when the WhatsApp application is in the background.
However, at the moment you can not prove the novelty, which is now being developed and will be available for phones with the Android 8 system and more recent.
A few days ago it was announced that WhatsApp plans to also offer in the near future one of the most anticipated news: the dark mode. The function is available in the beta version of update 2.19.82, which allows all colors in the application to be presented in light and dark.
The mode has several advantages. First, it will help reduce the tension in the user's eyes when using WhatsApp at night or in low light conditions, because the brightness of the screen will not be as bright. In addition, the 'dark mode' will help to conserve the battery in phones with OLED screens.
