WhatsApp’s latest update for iOS, version 22.2.75, sees many features rolling out for iOS users. One of the notable features is the capability to pause and resume voice messages while they’re being recorded. Another important feature being rolled out is additional support for Focus mode, which lets select users message you even when the mode is enabled. The latest update also adds the ability to view the profile photo of a user when they message you. WhatsApp has been working on testing these features for a few months.
Pause/ Resume Voice Recordings
The first new feature has now started rolling out to all iOS users. Once you update to the latest version of the app, you will be able to view a pause button while recording your voice messages. This will allow you to review your voice note before actually sending it. You can either choose to resume recording or delete the voice note after review. The earlier version of WhatsApp only allowed you to stop the voice recording.
Customise WhatsApp Notifications when Focus Mode is On
iOS 15 features a Focus Mode which is basically a DND mode that lets you cherry-pick the notifications that you want to receive. This feature was previously only available for apps such as iMessage. But the new update brings this feature to WhatsApp as well. You will now be able to let select users message you even when Focus Mode is turned on.

WhatsApp will now let you view the profile photo of contacts who messages you via notifications. It works similar to the Twitter Notification system, which lets you view the profile picture of the person who’s messaging you.
WhatsApp Working on More Updates
That’s not all. WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is working on more features such as iMessage-like reactions. The beta version 22.2.72 of WhatsApp for iOS hints at a feature that will let you manage reactions.
The three new WhatsApp features will be rolling out worldwide in the next few weeks. Are you able to view the new features? Let us know in the comments
