WhatsApp is reportedly testing out two new features for their chatting App. According to WABetaInfo, a website which analyzes the popular chatting app, the first feature will allow users to record voice messages without holding down on their screen during the entire duration while the second one will allow users to switch between video or voice calls during an ongoing call.
WhatsApp voice messages currently require users to keep the record button on the app window pressed during recording and then release it to send. However, under the new system, users will be given an option to lock down the record button after being pressed once and then press it again to stop recording and send.

Under the call swap feature, users will be getting a toggle switch to change an ongoing video call into a voice call and vice versa in the middle of a call. This feature will be especially useful for users experiencing sudden signal drops, where switching from video to voice call can be a great help.

Both the features have been spotted while datamining the latest WhatsApp update for Android. The features cannot be accessed by regular users yet.
WhatsApp has been busy in the past few months, bringing an array of new features to their App- most notably the 'Delete for Everyone'- and it appears that there are a few more in the pipeline.
