The capacity to listen to voice messages while other activities are taking place in the background was one capability that WhatsApp lacked.
Currently, it appears that WhatsApp is getting close to rolling out the feature, which would let users listen to voice chats or recordings outside of the chat window.
Users must currently maintain the associated chat window open in order to listen to audio talks on WhatsApp.
The voice conversation will restart at the beginning when both of you take the same action.
The new functionality, according to WABetaInfo, would enable users to switch between various chat windows even while participating in a voice chat.
Users were previously limited to only viewing one screen at once. Currently, WhatsApp users are unable to navigate between various chat windows.
More people would use the network for voice interactions if voice conversations could go on in the background, which would be good for the network.
