Distorted voice, slip of the tongue and co .: Voice messages are a real source of goofs
For some they are a curse, for others a blessing: voice messages on WhatsApp. If you don’t have a hand free to type a message, you can quickly press the record button, record a message and send it. But if you listen to the message again later, you sometimes almost get hit: a distorted voice, slip of the tongue and you haven’t really got to the point either. What were you thinking when you sent this message? You really wish that there was a function with which you could listen to a voice message again before sending it.
Goodbye embarrassing mistakes: a new function should help
A few days ago the messenger service WhatsApp informed its users about an upcoming update. In addition to the function of self-erasing messages, users should now also have the option of listening to voice messages again before they are sent. If the message has gotten too long again or if you have made a mistake umpteen times, you can easily delete it and start over. So far it was only possible with a little trick – now it’s very easy.
And this is how you use the new function:
- Start recording and drag the “Record” button up towards the lock. Now you can record a message without having to keep your finger on the screen all the time.
- When you are finished with your recording, press the “Stop” button. You can find it in the middle under the sound track since the last update.
- You now have the opportunity to listen to the message using the “Play” button. When you are satisfied with the result, press “Submit” as usual. If you do not want to send the recording, you can delete it using the trash can icon.
So being ashamed of yourself because of embarrassing voice messages is finally a thing of the past. (vho)
