With WhatsApp’s recent addition of the “View Once” audio message capability, users can now send voice messages that vanish after they are heard. WhatsApp revealed the new functionality in a blog post, comparing it to the View Once function that was unveiled for images and videos in 2021.
The purpose of the disappearing voice notes feature is to provide your communications a higher level of privacy. As a result, you can stop worrying that someone else will get your voice message. It’s easy to activate this feature and send the voice message without worrying about anything.
WhatsApp stated that there are various circumstances in which you could want to use a disappearing audio message in their blog post introducing the feature. If you’re organizing a surprise and don’t want anybody else to know, you might want to utilize it to exchange private information with a friend.
You may now transmit important data by voice message with increased peace of mind, whether you’re planning a surprise or handing out your credit card numbers to a friend. The business stated that View Once voice messages are clearly marked with the “one-time” sign and can only be played once, in keeping with the consistency of View Once photographs and videos.
Simply record your message as normal, then tap the new one-time icon before sending it to send a disappearing voice message. The message will only be available for the receiver to hear once before it disappears from their chat history.
Disappearing voice messages on WhatsApp are end-to-end encrypted by default, just like all of your private conversations. This implies that no one, not even WhatsApp, may view or hear the message other than the sender and the recipient.
Additionally, WhatsApp announced that over the next several days, the View Once capability for voice communications will be available everywhere. You can visit the WhatsApp Help Center to find out more about how it functions.
The latest in a string of privacy-focused improvements that WhatsApp has released in recent years is the ability to have audio messages disappear. Apart from the View Once feature for images and videos, WhatsApp also provides end-to-end encryption for all conversations and messages, along with the option to remove messages for all participants in a group chat. WhatsApp also made the Secret Code function available to all users a few days ago. With this feature, users can safeguard their discussions by creating a unique password using words or emojis.
