It seems the Facebook-owned WhatsApp has been on a roll to keep its reach intact. Whatsapp, the world’s most popular chat app seems to have done some real good in their new update. And these new features will definitely make Whatsapp using more easy and convenient. WhatsApp is surprising their users with latest updates like Allowing voicemail service, reading messages to users, can take the selfies in the dark.
Both iOS and Android users can send and receive voicemail to/from WhatsApp contact if they fail to take a call using Whatsapp VOIP calls.
Once enabled, the feature will allow people to leave voice messages. If a person calls someone on WhatsApp and the call is missed or rejected, the app gives three options to the user: call again, cancel and voice message. The “voice message” allows the users to send a message. To do so a user has to press the record button, speak the message, remove fingers from the screen and the message is sent to the intended WhatsApp user.
