WhatsApp has become the instant messaging application par excellence and each person uses it differently according to their needs.

The mobile application has the option that your contacts do not see the last time you connected and to deactivate read receipts, thus maintaining the user privacy.
On the contrary, voice notes they do retain the ‘blue chulitos’, which indicate when they have been listened to, even if the seen function is deactivated. In addition, right next to the play icon there is also a microphone that turns from gray to blue when they are played.
So if you don’t want the other person to know that you heard an audio, you can follow this guide.
(You may be interested: Humberto de la Calle was also a victim of WhatsApp hacking).
The easiest option is to forward the audio to another chat, so you can listen to it quietly. The only bad thing about this is that you will have to be a trustworthy person, because also will have access to the content of the message.
Another way, which could be a bit more complex, is forward it to yourself. Thus, you must create a group with someone else and then eliminate that person, so you will be alone in the chat.
In fact, it is also possible to ‘self-book’ on the phone to start a chat with yourself.
(Also: Batteries! This is how they are stealing WhatsApp accounts; avoid falling into the trap).
Some people often use this method to maintain a personal notebook in which they write what things to buy, put reminders of some tasks to be done and, of course, voice notes from others can be forwarded.
I made a group with myself on WhatsApp to use it as a scorer and pass things from my cell phone to my computer and this is the group photo, I think I am my best friend. pic.twitter.com/jkP0kwk16t
