In general, voice messages are played on main speakers and it is quite easy to people near you to listen to the message. If you don’t want them to listen to your message, just move the phone near your ear. Your phone’s proximity sensor will consider it as a normal phone call and will automatically switch speakers.
- Cancel a WhatsApp voice message
To send a voice message through WhatsApp, hold the recording button. The moment you release the button, the recorded message will be sent. But if you wish to cancel the message, just slide your finger to the left of the input field and trash-can will come out. This simply means that message has been removed.

Open the group and tap the Options icon at the top right. Choose the time you wish to mute the group for. You can also untick the Show notifications box so that you never hear from the group again until you choose otherwise.
