My new 5 day old Galaxy A71 is not playing WhatsApp voice messages in the loudspeaker automatically. When I play that, screen turns off and plays only through earpiece. Screen freezes at the same time, that i cannot pause or open other message. Screen won't recognize touch. I need to press the back button to stop that.
I restarted the phone, uninstalled and reinstalled WhatsApp, but no luck. When it plays through the earpiece, a green light flickers at the top besides the selfie camera.
Loudspeaker is working properly for YouTube, Facebook videos, phone calls. I can play the voice clips in loudspeaker if I play that from the media section.
Any helps will welcome...
I have the exact same issue with my new A71. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WhatsApp and it worked for a while, then reverted to turning the screen off and only playing softly through the earpiece.
Please let me know how to fix it or please ask WhatsApp to release a fix.
