WhatsApp for iOS latest update: New progress bar animation, no played receipts

Meanwhile, WhatsApp for iOS has been updated to include several new features as well, like new progress bar animation. Also, read receipts for voice messages can be enabled for the sender to not know when their voice message is played. This was reported by WABetaInfo.

Though a minor update, a new UI animation has been added to the voice message progress bar for when a voice message ends. The feature can be accessed on WhatsApp for iOS 13 and newer versions. The website also put out a short video showcasing the new animation.

Another feature lets recipients play voice messages without letting the sender know that their message has been played. This can be done by disabling Read Receipts in WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy. The feature is not available for Android users as of now and there is no clarity on when it will be rolled out.
