WhatsApp is rolling out a new update in which users can listen to a preview of their voice messages before sending them if you prefer sending voice messages over text messages on WhatsApp. The Meta-owned instant messaging platform took to its social media platform to announce the arrival of the new feature. This functionality was under testing for quite a long time as earlier the users were unable to get a preview of their Voice message before they hit send. But this is possible as the preview voice message will work both on individual chats as well as in group chats.
The WhatsApp preview voice message feature has been enabled for Android, iOS as well as Web/desktop platforms. One can now easily check if the audio quality is fine or not before they send it to an individual chat or in group chats. After tapping the Review button, you can listen to the voice message you were previously recording and you will be able to decide if you want to discard or send it.

How to preview WhatsApp voice message before sending
- First things first, launch WhatsApp and go to individual chat or group chat.
- Slide up to lock hands-free recording after tapping and holding the microphone.
- Begin to speak.
- Stop tapping when you’re done.
- To listen to your recording, press the play button. You can also tap any part of the recording to start playing it at that point in time.
- To delete the voice message, tap the trash can, or tap send to send it.
Note that If you just touch the microphone button on the app instead of sliding it up to lock the recording function, you can still accidentally send irregular voice messages.
In May this year, WhatsApp added a new feature allowing large media previews in chats for a better user experience. This feature shows larger media previews in chats so that you can see the large images and video previews on the display of sent media.
