WhatsApp is hugely popular on Android, iPhone and on desktops via the firm’s Web service.
The software is regularly updated to bring new and useful features to users.
It appears WhatsApp is introducing two fresh features to your smartphone, one of which should be available to harness right now.
First and foremost, it appears a forwarded count is finally coming to the popular service.
Android Police recently insisted the feature was present in WhatsApp beta 2.19.86 for Android, suggesting it could arrive in a final capacity for all users shortly.
The outlet noted if a user highlights a forwarded message they have sent to others, the app will list how many times they have done so.
These details will be presented alongside “read” and “delivered” information that is shown when a user highlights a message.
Unfortunately, WhatsApp fans are not able to see how many times a message has been forwarded if it is sent to them from someone else.
Moreover, it is also unclear when this feature will release.
Secondly, Android Police stated a new feature should be arriving for all users of the popular app right now that allows for continuous playback of voice messages.
This means instead of having to press the play button for each memo, the app will automatically play each message sent after the initial one.
WeChat already offers the functionality that in Express.co.uk’s experience is surprisingly useful, especially when chatting with others that send multiple messages at once.
Android Police declared the voice memo addition is rolling out in WhatsApp version 2.19.150.
If your smartphone has not already received this update, you can head to the Play Store to obtain it.
It is expected the new feature will also be making its way to iPhones, too.
