This App is bringing in improvements to make it more secure and more user-friendly. WhatsApp update 12.19.61 brought out some interesting changes which we are going to discuss below:

  1. Play Consecutive Voice Messages in Android


WhatsApp will let Android users to consecutively play voice messages without having to tap on each one of them to play. This feature was already available for Beta users. If a person has sent multiple voice messages at a time, the receiver just has to play the first one and the next one will automatically play itself when the first one is finished.  This cool feature has made it easy to listen to multiple voice messages at a time.


  1. Profile Pictures Cannot be Saved

The new WhatsApp update would not let users save other users profile pictures which I think is a great thing. Some users never felt comfortable with the option where other contacts can save their profile pictures. It is good news for users because this option has been removed from both iOS and Android WhatsApp accounts.

One of the coolest features in this update is the group call option. Now you can add up to 4 people in a call.

All you have to tap on “New Group Call” option or go to the corresponding group and tap on the phone+ icon given on the upper left corner of the group chat.
