WhatsApp updates the beta and continues working on new features that we hope to see very soon

The boys of Whatsapp do not give up in their efforts, the development of the popular instant messaging application is slow but remains in line, and although we do not echo all the versions that are published in WhatsApp Beta , the truth is the new v2.18.84 incorporates interesting news about the new audio recording functionality that will come soon.

We had talked to you about the adaptive icons for Android Oreo a couple of weeks ago, an aesthetic novelty that has not yet reached the stable version, and today we have more information and the first captures, from the hand of WABetaInfo , on the new audio recording that had already been introduced in version 2.18.70 and from which we were still waiting for news.

The bad news is that for now it will remain disabled, but its development seems already so advanced that it is likely that we will soon see the new interface for recording audio messages , that will avoid finally having to press constantly to record a voice message.

WhatsApp has improved the user interface by adding Useful tips on the operation of vocal recording , and they have also modified the animations to make them fresher and more current. This is something that we can already prove in the Beta, although for the moment what it remains inactive is the button that allows you to block the recording to release our thumb when capturing audio.

In addition, they have Fixed multiple errors of the previous versions , hence the jump was from 2.18.82 directly to 2.18.84, especially in the part of the emojis and also in the menu description of the groups. It is no longer possible for example to call oneself doing click in the notification “You have deleted this description” when the description of a group is deleted, and strange behaviors of other functions have been corrected.

Without news of the stickers

Unhappily, the new version of WhatsApp Beta has not introduced No news regarding the expected stickers or stickers that will accompany the emojis and GIFs when animating a chat, although it is likely that the developers have continued the work in a less visible way since it is one of the most expected features of the service.

People have been talking about the stickers on WhatsApp and practically all of their direct competition already allows them to be used, so I’m sure we’ll see them arrive sooner rather than later. We will have to keep an eye on the movements from WhatsApp, even more after the sanction filed by the Spanish Agency for Data Protection
