WhatsApp will add the ability to pause voicemail recording, fixed chat backup issue detected: reports
WhatsApp is reportedly working on allowing users to pause voice recordings while they are recording, via a future update.

Additionally, the instant messaging service is said to be working on fixing an issue with chat backups as well. A Reddit user detailed the steps needed to resolve the issue where Google Drive chat backups were stuck at 100% when restoring.
WABetaInfo, a WhatsApp features tracker, reported that users will soon be able to pause and resume recording their voicemail messages. The new feature of the Facebook-owned chat app will soon be available for beta users on Android and iOS.

There is no information on the start of the rollout of the feature for beta and stable versions of WhatsApp.

How To Fix WhatsApp Chat Backup From Google Drive Problem
Unlink the WhatsApp account from Google Drive.
Rename the most recent database to mgstore.db – without changing the .crypt extension. This database can be found using a file manager.
Install WhatsApp using the same mobile number.
Since WhatsApp and Google Drive are not linked, the chat app will use the local database to restore chats.
Once restored, users can link WhatsApp and Google Drive through the app’s backup settings.
