Mastering the Art of Sending Self-Destructing View-Once Voice Messages on WhatsApp
In August 2021, WhatsApp introduced the revolutionary “View-Once” feature for photos and videos, allowing users to share ephemeral visual content. Building on this success, WhatsApp has now expanded the functionality to include voice messages, adding a new layer of privacy and excitement to your conversations.
The View Once Voice Message Experience
Similar to its visual counterpart, the View-Once Voice Message feature ensures that the audio message sent cannot be replayed or retained by the recipient once opened. The sender, too, is restricted from listening to the message after transmission. Users with read receipts enabled will see a clear “Opened” label when the recipient accesses the message.
How to Send View Once Voice Messages on WhatsApp:
- Initiate a one-on-one or group chat.
- Press the microphone icon to begin recording.
- Swipe up to cease recording.
- Tap and hold the record button for an extended message.
- Activate the View-Once mode by tapping the dedicated icon (turns green when enabled).
- Click the send button to dispatch your self-destructing voice message.
Consistent and Secure
To maintain consistency with View-Once images and videos, WhatsApp employs the “one-time” icon to denote View-Once voice messages. Moreover, all View-Once communications, including voice messages, benefit from default end-to-end encryption, ensuring the utmost security and privacy.
The global rollout of View-Once Voice Messages is set to commence in the coming days, promising an enhanced and secure communication experience for WhatsApp users worldwide. Stay tuned to enjoy the latest evolution in private messaging!
