WhatsApp is making a huge change to voice notes – and it'll spare you from embarrassment | The Sun

WHATSAPP is making a huge change to voice notes that could be useful when you've sent something you regret.

If you're too slow to delete an audio message this new feature could be the fallback option to spare even more issues.

And by that we mean, preventing anyone from sending it onto others.

It turns out WhatsApp is looking to give voice notes the self-destruct treatment.

This means it'll only play once and can't be repeated.

We've already seen it used for pictures and texts, so it seems only fair that audio should get it too.
