Voice notes are one of the most used communication formats in WhatsApp. When it comes to explaining certain matters, the most comfortable thing to do is to tell them out loud while the telephone records everything we say. In this way, the listener understands more easily what we want to express.

One of the main drawbacks of WhatsApp audios is that they are sent without the possibility of a review. However, this has changed in the latest versions of the application. Can you listen to a voice note before sending it? Yes, and here is how to do it.

How to listen to WhatsApp audios before sending them

First, access the conversation or group you want to share your audio with. Then, press the microphone button to start.
