How to send View Once voice messages on WhatsApp? In August 2021, WhatsApp launched the “View Once” function for photographs and videos, allowing users to communicate self-destructing photos and movies. WhatsApp has now enhanced that feature to include voice communications.
View Once for voice messages, which should have been called Hear Once, operates similarly to View Once for photographs and videos. An audio message you send to the receiver cannot be heard again after it has been opened, nor can it be kept on their phone. The sender is also unable to listen to it after it has been sent.
If the receiver has read receipts enabled, the View Once audio message will also display a label reading “Opened” once the message is opened.
How to send View Once Voice Messages on WhatsApp?

- Swipe up to stop recording.

According to WhatsApp, for consistency with View Once images and videos, as well as View Once voice messages, are denoted by the “one-time” icon. They are also encrypted end-to-end by default.
View Voice messages will begin to be sent globally in the following days.
