WABetaInfo has tweeted an image of WhatsApp voice messages preview in notifications.

The feature is expected to come as a part of a major update, possible iOS 13. The feature is still under development and there is no information on a concrete launch date for it. Until now, WhatsApp users have been able to preview videos and photos through the notifications. WABetaInfo has tweeted an image of what the preview will look like. The image shows a voice message with a play icon and the name of the sender has been blurred out.

The feature enables you to share your status on apps like Facebook, Instagram, Gmail and Google Photos. You can read more about the feature here
