Meta, which owns WhatsApp, is known for its focus on secure communication. A new feature has been added: voice notes, which can only be heard once.¬†The addition comes after the successful implementation of the “view once option” for photos. This gives users more control over the content they share.

How to use the feature:

  • Users can select “View once” when sending a voice message.
  • The voice note is deleted from the chat after it has been played.
  • This feature provides an additional layer of security for private or sensitive messages.

Benefits from one-time voice note:

  • Improved privacy for users:¬†Users can share information without fear that it will be stored or transmitted without their consent.
  • Greater control over content. Users have the option to choose what and how much they wish to share.
  • Feel secure: Users are assured that their private messages will not be stored or misused.

The introduction of voice notes is a sign that WhatsApp is committed to ensuring its users’ safety and security. It allows individuals to communicate in confidence and protects sensitive information.
