Facebook-owned photo-messaging app WhatsApp has introduced its “audio picker” with a new user interface (UI), allowing users to choose a total of 30 audio files to send at once. “WhatsApp has recently enabled the new ‘audio picker’ with the possibility to play the audio before sending it and to select more audio files to send,” WABetaInfo reported earlier this week.

The feature would let its over 1.5 billion users know how many times a message has been forwarded, which could raise questions on its authenticity. A message is “Frequently Forwarded” when it has been forwarded more than four times. Currently, WhatsApp has limited the forwards to a maximum of five in India.
