Currently, users have to tap on every voice message in order to listen to the message, but a new update is expected to bring a feature wherein voice messages will automatically start playing after the chosen one is finished.

Fingerprint Unlock: In this current digital age, everyone is concerned about the privacy and security of their conversation and files. According to a source, Facebook owned WhatsApp seems to be working on bringing an extra layer of security by adding fingerprint authorization for the app. This essentially means that users will need to authenticate their identity whenever they open the app.

Media Preview: This new feature will allow the users to preview messages with media directly from the notification shade. Currently, users have to open the message to view a photo, video or GIF.
