One of them is that it will allowListen to the voice notes without entering the message.WhatsApp already gave the option to read and respond to messages from the notification screen, but the audios could not be played from there.
It will also be possibleperform advanced searchesin conversations to find a specific message, photo or video without leaving WhatsApp. To achieve this, the app will be integrated with services such as Google Images and will incorporate a tracking system, as well as a history with the latest user searches.
