(CTN News) – WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, asserts itself as the most secure platform for online conversations and continuously enhances its security measures to uphold this claim.
In its ongoing efforts to ensure safer conversations, WhatsApp has recently introduced a new feature called “view once” for voice messages.
Following the successful implementation of the “view once” option for photos to safeguard against misuse, this functionality has now been extended to voice notes as well.
WhatsApp officially announced on its X account,
“You can now opt for ‘view once’ when sending a voice note, providing an additional layer of protection. Say it once, play it.”
The slideshow video included in the content provided a comprehensive explanation of the new “view once” function for voice notes.
This feature gives individuals complete control over what they share, allowing them to determine who can listen to their voice notes and for how long.
With the “view once” function, users can privately share voice notes with others, knowing that the recipient will not be able to save, forward, or listen to the voice notes more than once.
This ensures that the content remains confidential and can only be accessed by the intended recipient.
This new feature is particularly beneficial for individuals who need to transmit sensitive information. Whether it’s personal or professional data, users can now have peace of mind knowing that their voice notes will not be saved or forwarded to any third parties.
This enhances the security and privacy of their WhatsApp communications, reducing the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches.
By incorporating the “view once” function for voice notes, the platform aims to provide a more secure and controlled sharing experience for its users.
This WhatsApp feature empowers individuals to have greater control over their digital communications, ensuring that their voice notes are only accessible for a limited time and by the intended recipient.
