WhatsApp has really been on a high tide recently, releasing continuously update after update. Among the new features the developers added to the app we could see the voicemail option. The feature was first released for the iPhones, but now the company is rolling out the update for Android fans too, through Google Play. The most recent beta version for Android devices includes another update, which is sharing contents with several other people and groups at the same time.
As for now, Android is receiving the voicemail feature, together with the call back one. The new build is called v2.16.225 and it seems to be very stable. The Android beta version, released last month, preceded this stable build and foresaw the introduction of lots of new features. You can now leave a voicemail when your friend doesn’t answer the call. You can send it just like any other voice message, but for now you will not be able to listen to it again before sending it. Perhaps the developers will also include this in a future update.
Another interesting feature the developers added is the fact that you can now use secret fonts for your messages if you type ”’ in the beginning and the end of the text. In the beta version users could see that now you’re able to forward or send a certain content to more people at the same time, which was not possible until now.
If you want to test out the new features, you can sign up for the beta testing program in Google Play. You can then download the latest version from the store. Alternatively, you can download the APK from the APK Mirror.
Currently, people say that WhatsApp is working on introducing video calling, gif sharing, bigger emojis and zoom when recording videos in the app.
