After sending pictures or messages to our friends, one of the most used functions in WhatsApp, is voice notes. Many hate them and others love them, but voice notes, whether we like it or not, have become an indispensable tool in the application. Now you can record WhatsApp voice notes in the background without using your hands.
To record voice memos, until now, you had to be holding the phone. But now WhatsApp allows you to record voice notes without using your hands with a new recorder that works in the background. A very simple function that will allow WhatsApp to continue recording audio even if you go to another application. In addition, you will not have to go back to WhatsApp to stop the recording but from the extended notification of the app, you can pause it when you want to stop the recording.
