WhatsApp, Facebook-owned messaging app, is rolling out a special feature for specific beta users testers.

WhatsApp is reportedly working on two interesting features, one on the possibility of playing and resuming voice recordings and second on the ability to hide the last seen from specific contacts.

The user with the new pause and resume feature can pause their recording and then resume before sending it. At present, WhatsApp users can only record a voice message in one go and send it, thus, they cannot listen to the recorded message before sending it.

Only selected WhatsApp accounts can use the voice recordings feature. Even if the user is a beta tester, he/she may not be able to utilise the feature yet as only selected beta testers have received it.

Earlier, WhatsApp has added three new features to the web version of the platform. The company had announced that users could now edit photos on the web version, too, and preview links as well.

“We built this feature with privacy in mind, so rest assured that WhatsApp can’t see your searches, and your personal messages are always protected by end-to-end encryption,” the company had said.

WhatsApp has now also added a media editor feature to the web version of the platform. Until now, this was only possible on the mobile version of the app if one wanted to edit an image.  WhatsApp has also improved how people can see previews of links.
