In the latest software update, WhatsApp has introduced a new feature for a better user experience, It has now enabled large media previews in chats. This feature will let you view photos and videos fully in your chats. 

The WhatsApp latest update 2.21.80 version has just landed on the devices. It now comes with the ability to show larger media previews in chats so that you can see the large images and video previews on the display of sent media. It should be noted, before coming on the Android devices the iOS users have already received this feature last month. The popular social media channel took to Twitter to notify users about the latest update and the feature. The tweet reads out, “Photos and videos in WhatsApp are now even bigger, so no one will be left out of the picture! That’s the perfect reason to smile.”

In addition to the tweet, a short video has also been attached that demonstrates how the feature works. A sent media file is shown as a large preview, the video and photos are seen much bigger than before.  

Apart from this, WhatsApp is also working on a new voice message review tool for Android and iOS. As per the latest report by WABetaInfo the instant messaging platform has enabled the features for the beta testing which allows using different playback speeds to listen to voice messages. It comes for WhatsApp beta Android version and it is not available yet for the public.

The feature for voice messages will allow you to review voice messages so that you will be able to listen to voice messages before sending them. At the moment the users can switch to different section before sending the voice message so as to review voice messages. But in future when this playback speed for voice messages is rolled out to the public a new Review button will be seen in the app so that you can easily tap to listen to the voice message.

As per a report, 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. This feature is under the testing phase and it is expected to be rolled out through future updates for both iOS and Android devices.
