TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – WhatsApp launched beta testing by bringing a waveform view of sent and received voice messages on Android and iOS devices. The messaging application replaces the appearance of voice messages which previously only had lines that became wavy.
WhatsApp’s new feature tracking platform, WABetaInfo, reveals certain people who own WhatsApp for Android beta version 188.8.131.52 has already started seeing the voicemail waveform. Some users of WhatsApp for iOS beta version 184.108.40.206 have also started seeing the update on their iPhones.

WABetaInfo also notes that the waveform feature will not be visible for voicemail received from users who do not have the latest beta release. A display will also appear if the waveform feature is disabled for the current account of the Meta created app—no matter if it has the latest beta version on the device or not.
Along with testing sound waveforms for select beta testers, WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is starting to work on a new setting that will allow users on the Web and desktop versions to turn off message reaction notifications. A toggle to disable this notification alert has been seen in WhatsApp Desktop beta 2.21.2147.11.
However, the update has not yet been made available to beta testers and appears to be currently limited to internal testing. By providing an option to disable message reaction notifications, the app with the handset logo allows users to disable all notification alerts related to reactions made to messages on the platform.
WhatsApp was spotted testing the message reaction notification settings for iOS in October. A similar test appeared on Android last month, and message reactions on the platform were also seen in August. However, there’s no official word on exactly when you’ll be able to see WhatsApp launch reaction messages along with the associated notification settings.
