    For some time now, users who follow the beta program of WhatsApp have talked about a sort of "answering machine", or the ability to record a voice message in the event of a missed call or a rejected call.

    Well, with the latest update of the app for Android and iOS, the developers have decided to activate the WhatsApp answering machine and make it available for all users even in a stable version.

    In fact, using the WhatsApp answering machine is very simple and the procedure is very similar to that of recording a voice note; the only difference is that the interface is shown when the call made is not answered.



    How to use the WhatsApp answering machine

    As already mentioned, many have asked us how to activate the WhatsApp answering machine: in reality this is not necessary, since the functionality arrives automatically from the version 2.16.222 of the app for Android 2.16.8 dell’app iOS.

    So be wary of any messages or procedures that claim to activate the WhatsApp answering machine manually: they will certainly be scams or the like.

    Using the WhatsApp answering machine is simple: in the moment make a WhatsApp call and you do not receive an answer, or if the other party refuses the call, the app will show a screen similar to this:

    From there you can attempt to recall your contact or leave a message by pressing the appropriate key, similar to the one for recording a voice note. The operation is identical: hold down the key while recording your message and release it when you are finished.


    To cancel, swipe to the left instead. In addition to the missed call notification, your contact will also receive the your voicemail message in the form of voice note.
