WhatsApp Voice Chats in the Working
The messaging service owned by Meta is testing voice chats (formerly known as audio chats) as part of the WhatsApp beta for the Android 18.104.22.168 update, according to feature tracker WABetaInfo. There was nothing substantial accessible earlier while this was being tried.
The new beta update has added a new audio waveform icon to WhatsApp groups, which will start a voice chat and serve as a visual cue that a voice chat is currently in progress. When the option is selected, a specific voice chat interface will emerge, and you can join it to have audio conversations with other people.
But how does it differ from WhatsApp groups' calling feature? Both of these features are mostly used for verbal communication. The new feature's only distinction is that it will send a silent notification that a voice conversation is active rather than ringing other people. Therefore, joining a call immediately away won't be necessary.

And the voice chat will cease if no one joins within 60 minutes. However, you will still have the option of making a new one when perhaps everyone is free. More than 32 persons can join using this feature, however the amount is still erratic and might change when the feature is formally released.
We would have to wait till it spreads out to everyone to get a clearer picture of how this feature will differ from phone calls and possibly prove to be superior to them. We anticipate WhatsApp will approach voice chats the same way it does other features it frequently sees fit to test out before making them official. Keep checking back for additional information and we'll keep you informed. Do you also believe that this functionality will be more practical and beneficial than calls?
