According to online portal WeBetaInfo, WhatsApp's new feature called Locked Recording allows users to record longer audio files and they don't have to press and hold the microphone button for the entire duration of the audio recording, anymore. It is similar to the YouTube Android app, but it is lightweight, with the option to download and save videos for offline viewing.

WhatsApp has over 1.2 billion monthly active users worldwide. This would make multi-tasking easier for users as they can watch a video and continue with the chat simultaneously. Additionally, the company has rolled out a new feature to lock recording, which enables users to record without pressing the button down. With this feature, you can lock the recording, so that you can leave the record button. If you are an iPhone or iPad user, all you need to do is to update your WhatsApp to the latest version on iTunes.

When users tap on a YouTube link in a conversation they no longer have to leave the app in order to watch it. Earlier, to record a voice note, one had to long press the icon to record a message.

"WhatsApp is also testing a feature that will allow to directly mute a video", the report added. The recent update of WhatsApp has also allowed group administrators to exercise more control over their chat groups, by limiting group chat feature to certain group member and preventing other administrators from deleting the group creator.

Talking about the first feature, if someone sends you a YouTube video link and if you click it, then the video will be opened in WhatsApp chat itself, rather than opening the YouTube app separately.

WhatsApp is developing a new feature to permit users to switch from voice to video call rapidly during the voice call.
