Whatsapp introduces new voice recording feature for Android
CALIFORNIA: The popular messaging app Whatsapp is about to roll out its feature for Android which could end up recording your secrets and broadcasting them to your contacts.
The communications app is now preparing to introduce an Android update a ‘locked record’ function which will allow you to switch on record by tapping the microphone and holding it for a half a second. Currently, Android users have to hold the icon to record a message. But the update lets you record without worrying about your finger slipping off previously forcing you to start the process all over again.
However, there is a very real risk that you could accidentally switch on the locked record, which means your voice can be recorded and sent to people without intent.
The best way to protect yourself from this debacle is to make sure you lock your phone before putting it in your bag or pocket.
Apple users already have this updated on their gadget which was included in a beta version of the new Whatsapp software.
