You also have the option to choose between those you wish to notify about your number change.
Today, the latest version of WhatsApp beta version 2.18.102 on Android has been updated with the Lock Recording Feature.
Locked Recording Feature: Once your audio is locked, you can record while navigating through your chats history. Before now, you’ll have to hold down your microphone to record your audio before sending to recipient.
To show it, you will have to tap the “microphone” icon in the chat and, after 0.5 seconds, WhatsApp will show you a new UI, presenting a locked microphone button.
Once it appeared, you will need to slide up your finger for enabling the lock recording. Once enabled, you’ll be able to record your message without holding down the microphone button.
WhatsApp will update the UI again, giving you the possibility to navigate in the chat without holding that obnoxious microphone button!
With time, this feature and the number change feature will be rolled out globally to Android, iOS and windows users.
