Hello ~ hope this will fit in the General Chat okay!
Do you use WhatsApp? I do..on my iPhone5s. This application has really been wonderful to use to chat with a girlfriend in Asia.
I had been using the voice message feature and would send at minimum a 2 minute message. Then suddently I could not get past a 9 second recording! Not good for a chatty Cathy!
After doing a bit of Google searching, I learned my 9 second limitation was due to the new glass screen protector I had installed (after spending $85.00 to replace the screen due to the phone dropping!!!)
The glass screen was preventing a good finger contact with the microphone. So..what I learned was: using either the thumb or first finger, once I made contact with the microphone I kept a circular motion on the microphone, with either finger and ta-da..my ability to generate a 2 min.+ voice message was back!
I searched to no avail here in BC to see if there had been anything posted regarding this WhatsApp problem, so here I share what I learned from others for a fix!
