WeChat messaging app in China is getting updated to the latest version 8.0.11 and it brings a newly added audio feature for the Huawei users. This new function is available for both the HarmonyOS and EMUI running models and will be useful while making a voice or a video call.

It allows users to listen to a voice or a video call from the speaker of the device and the connected headsets at the same time. This feature lets a single user and a group of people access the sound when the Bluetooth headsets are connected. It works differently in various scenarios.

  • For instance, in the situation where the users connect to Bluetooth headsets, the latest WeChat version will allow the incoming call audio to display on the speaker and the Bluetooth earphones at the same time.
  • On Desktop or other WeChat interface: A user during the call using WeChat will receive the call audio from both the speaker of the device and the Bluetooth headsets.
  • For EMUI users: This feature works differently in the EMUI software. The user won’t receive the audio from both the speaker and the Bluetooth headsets at the same time.
  • For HarmonyOS users: In the case of a HarmonyOS device, the WeChat outgoing calls prompt tone will be played first. And then it will be played on the Bluetooth headset.
