Another feature that’s added with this update will allow the users to play voice messages in notification without the need to open the chat window. The shortcut for the feature will not be placed in the notifications but on the pop-up screens, users can long-press the WhatsApp notification to play the voice messages without opening the chat window. The update also allows Memoji to be sent as stickers within chats with their contacts, directly from the emoji keyboard in iOS 13.
