The WhatsApp app has been updated to version v 18.104.22.168, very soon after its last update a day earlier.
Like the earlier one it came without a changelog, but fortunately the benefit is obvious.
The earlier update had broken the voice messaging functionality, with users unable to listen to their messages. Version v 22.214.171.124, a day later, corrects that issue, which is pretty responsive of the WhatsApp team.
The updated app can be found in the Windows Store here.
