WhatsApp is the application that practically all users use to communicate instead of calls or SMS, And, although it is an application that we are not enthusiastic about, mainly due to its links with Facebook and the deficits in terms of privacy that this social network has, the truth is that lately it is improving a lot in all aspects.

If you look back you will see that for a long time the application has not stopped introducing new features, whether they are in order to introduce new ways of communicating, such as video calls, or some improvements in the –sometimes insufferable– groups.

Sending audios on WhatsApp will be easier than ever

Yes, surely you have also sent or received audio messages of two or three minutes, in which you have to press and hold the record audio icon practically until your fingers end up glued to the mobile as if there were glue.

As you can see in the image, the way to operate it will be quite simple, since, simply, we will have to press and hold for a moment on the usual button to record audio, and then swipe up in the direction of the lock icon.

At the moment, it has not reached Android, but it has reached iOS, and this comes with certain limitations, such as the inability we will have to see a photo, or write a message when we are recording the audio. Totally logical things, which we don't normally do when we send an old-fashioned audio.
