Whatsapp is constantly working on improving this popular instant messaging service through the introduction of new features, one of which was announced just in the past few hours.
We refer to the ability to listen to a preview of a voice message before sending it to the recipient, to avoid embarrassing errors or try to understand if the concept you wanted to express is clear.
This is a function on which the WhatsApp team has been working for a long time and which is finally ready to be made available to all users.
They’re not mistakes, they’re rehearsals. Now you can preview your voice messages before you hit send.

We are confident that this new feature will be greatly appreciated by those who use voice messages a lot.
A new beta for WhatsApp UWP is coming
And still speaking of WhatsApp, the developers in the past few hours have released version 2.2148.3.7 beta from WhatsApp UWP (Universal Windows Platform).
With this release, those who use this messaging service app are also able to send new emojis and create combinations of skin tones for the pairs of smileys.
In addition, with this update, the developers have also introduced a way to see previews of documents, general improvements, and the fixes of some bugs found in previous releases.
