Report from WABetaInfo has suggested that the latest additions to the WhatsApp Beta for Android may include consecutive voice messages and group call shortcuts.
The two updates were delivered to the beta version of the messaging app yesterday, 27 November 2018, but they might not be available to all users of WhatsApp Beta for Android… yet.
The latest voice messages feature will allow users to automatically play voice messages if they are sent directly after each other.
This will be available when two or more voice messages are detected by WhatsApp, and the app will automatically play all other consecutive voice messages, removing the need to manually play each clip.
WhatsApp is also testing its new group call shortcuts in its Android app, which allow users to start a group chat directly by pressing the group call button.
After tapping this button, WhatsApp will allow you to select the contacts you wish to call and choose whether to start a video or voice call.
These features will be remotely enabled in upcoming WhatsApp Beta for Android updates.
