It is possible to record audio on WhatsApp and listen to music at the same time. By default, the app pauses the playing music when it starts recording a voice message. However, a tip for Android phones that few people know about allows the user to record the sound from the phone itself. The trick is to lock the audio record, while accessing the system's notification center and play the music. This feature is useful, as it allows you to send excerpts of your favorite songs to friends.
