WhatsApp may change the way users send audio files to contacts

The new feature to the group would allow the group administrators to determine whether or not they want frequently forwarded messages shared in the group chat. Previously, "frequently forwarded" tag had started appearing for messages which were forwarded more than four times. The ease of use, multitude of features, ad-free experience and availability across all platforms makes it the number one choice for smartphone and tablet users.

Spread of fake news: WhatsApp has been blamed for the spread of rumours and fake news, which have led to the deaths of 40 people being lynched in India over the past two years. The feature is now in works as we expect WhatsApp to roll it out soon.

Other tools added to fight hoaxes and fake news the platform include forward limits, suspicious link detection, and improved admin controls. No tracks have been found in the iOS app. The app is available on Apple App Store for download and comes with all the same features as its Android counterpart.

"WhatsApp has recently enabled the new "audio picker" with the possibility to play the audio before sending it and to select more audio files to send", WABetaInfo reported earlier this week.

Soon, iPad users might get a standalone WhatsApp app.

This is basically a WhatsApp update for large screens, as this application has the same features available on the iPhone. While nearly every other aspect of WhatsApp has seen an upgrade for the better, sending audio files to contacts was stuck in what seemed like a time warp. However, WABetaInfo says that the support might be available in the next beta updates on TestFlight.

Apart from the split screen interface which works both in portrait and landscape mode, everything else on the iPad version looks similar to the iPhone app.
