Android users on WhatsApp, get ready for some new features coming your way. Now, WhatsApp beta 2.19.86 enables automatically playing of voice note in consecutive order. This means, unfortunately, there is no news about when it'll be available on the beta program, never mind for all WhatsApp users. This feature basically automatically plays consecutive voice notes. As the name suggests, this feature plays multiple audio messages consecutively. Last year, the messenger received an option to lock voice note recording so you don't have to hold the voice note button in case of long messages.

The second version of the Picture in Picture (PiP) feature is also under development in the 2.19.86 beta update. The PiP improvements are disabled by default for now, but can be expected to be enabled in the next updates once it is properly developed. However, the PiP Mode on Android app has a limitation - it plays video only inside a chat. Once enabled, WhatsApp will ask you to register your fingerprint, after which you can choose if you want the app to be locked immediately after you leave the app, after 1 minute, after 10 minutes, or after 30 minutes. Well, WhatsApp fixes that with the latest beta update. Both of these features are now being tested and not available to users. There is also no word on when the feature will be rolled out to the public version of the app.
