New Delhi | Jagran Technology Desk: WhatsApp, owned by Meta on Wednesday announced that they have updated the Voice messages feature to make it even better. Every now and then this messaging platform rolls out update for its existing features or even introduce a new feature to make users' experience better. WhatsApp messages were launched in the year 2013 to allow app users to communicate via voice to make messaging easier and more personal.

In a blog, WhatsApp wrote, "Voice messages have made it quick and easy for people to have more expressive conversations. Showing emotion or excitement through voice is more natural than text, and in many situations, voice messages are the preferred form of communication on WhatsApp."

"It’s simple for anyone to use - for your family members who prefer to avoid typing, for your friends who love to tell stories, for your peers who need encouraging words, or for when you want to hear your partner's voice at the end of a long day," it added.
