The WhatsApp team has announced the launch of new features that should appeal to users who often send voice messages.
Previously, these innovations were tested in beta versions of WhatsApp, and now they are becoming available in stable versions of the messenger. As the developers promise, new features will gradually spread over the coming weeks.
In total, there are six innovations for voice messages in WhatsApp:
- Playback outside the chat, so that when you switch to another messenger screen, the message will not be interrupted
- Recording a message can be paused and then resumed when ready
- When playing, you can also pause the sound, and then resume from the same place when you return to the chat
- Voice visualization – when playing, a sound wave is displayed
- Preview recording before sending
- Playback at 1.5x or 2x speed for both regular and forwarded messages
WhatsApp will stop working on iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. From autumn, the messenger will not be supported on iOS 10 and iOS 11
According to the WABetaInfo resource, which tracks all the innovations in the messenger, the application developers will stop supporting devices running iOS 10 and iOS 11 this year. This will happen on October 24th.
Thus, in the fall, WhatsApp will stop working on smartphones such as the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. This data is confirmed by the WhatsApp Help Center, which indicates that the application requires iOS 12 (and higher) and Android 4.1 (and higher) to work.
Apple is expected to unveil iOS 16 at WWDC 2022 in June. It will introduce many new features, but at the same time, the new OS will not be supported by a number of the company’s popular phones – iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and first generation iPhone SE.
Even Windows 11 has already been updated to Android 12.1. Microsoft has updated the subsystem Windows Subsystem for Android
Microsoft continues to develop the idea of combining Windows and Android. Recently, the company announced the release of an update to the Windows Subsystem for Android subsystem for its current OS.
One of the main innovations is the transition to Android 12.1 (12L). The current public version is based on Android 11. Initially, the update is only available through the Dev Channel. When it will become available to everyone is still unclear.
Microsoft notes that updating to Android 12.1 may result in some apps not running. She does not specify which ones, but it probably refers to some old programs.
The update also strengthens the integration of Android into Windows. For example, pop-up messages are first displayed as Windows notifications. The taskbar now shows if an Android app is accessing your microphone or location.
The company also states that Android apps should work better after waking the computer from standby. Instead of restarting, they should just resume where they left off.

In addition, it is confirmed that the smartphone will receive high-quality stereo speakers, support for Dolby Atmos, a powerful vibration motor, multifunctional NFC, a 3.5 mm jack, and will also run MIUI 13 out of the box.
The Redmi Note 11T series will support the new generation of Bluetooth 5.3, which offers lower power consumption and improved anti-interference, more stable connection, and support for LC3 audio encoding.
The presentation of the line is expected on May 24.
