WhatsApp 'View Once' feature now available for voice notes - Here's how it works
WhatsApp 'View Once' Feature: WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, said that the feature is currently being tested for Android and iOS users who are using the beta version of the app.
WhatsApp 'View Once' Feature: Two years after introducing the 'View Once' feature for photos and videos, WhatsApp has now introduced this feature for voice messages. This simply means that voice messages will disappear after being played once.
"For reading out your credit card details to a friend, or when you’re planning a surprise, you can now also share sensitive information over voice message with added peace of mind. For consistency with View Once photos and videos, View Once voice messages are clearly marked with the “one-time” icon and can only be played one time," the company said in a release.
WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, said that the feature is currently being tested for Android and iOS users who are using the beta version of the app.
