Whatsapp upgrade adds voice messages to chat app

ImageWhatsapp is adding the ability to record and send voice messages to its smartphone chat software.
One analyst said the addition of voice messages should help the firm boost its popularity in parts of the developing world.
“In south-east Asia, for example India and China, and parts of Africa voice messages are popular as an alternative to typing on phones’ English-style keyboards,” Neha Dharia, an analyst at telecoms consultancy Ovum told the BBC.
Whatsapp is not putting any duration limit on voice messages sent.
