After increasing the Delete for Everyone time limit to 68 minutes, Messaging application WhatsApp is now testing a new feature that would allow Android users to lock the record button. As noted by WABetainfo, the Locked Recording button feature allows Whatsapp users to lock the record button and won’t need to tap and then hold the record button as it is currently on the Android version of WhatsApp. This feature is expected to solve the issue of users holding the record button before sending a recorded file.
WhatsApp users on iOS platform got this feature last year, and ever since then, Android users have been waiting for the feature to be ported to the Android platform.
Talking about recording and stuff, WhatsApp is also testing another feature that allows users to preview recordings before sending it to the recipient. This preview recording feature is expected to make it into the public beta version.
WABetaInfo also noted that WhatsApp would be rolling out updated features to its stickers
