WhatsApp has been working for quite some time on the “My Contact Except…" feature which will add more control over the privacy of the users. For the said update, the users will have a control to show/hide the last seen, about, profile photo to anyone.

“This feature will be likely released on WhatsApp Web/Desktop when WhatsApp has completely rolled out the same feature on Android beta and iOS beta. Unfortunately, there isn’t a known release date for the feature to be enabled for more users on iOS and Android," found out WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo.

You can listen the recording before sending it which could help you send the correct message. You can either send it or discard the voice message if it is not how you wanted it to be.
