Is it possible to listen to WhatsApp voice notes while driving?

It's not possible, Android Auto does not allow for voice messages like that, although it would be a no-brainer for Google to provide an API. Imagine push-to-talk voice messages on any app that supports them. There even are Bluetooth dedicated buttons that can work with apps like Zello.

BTW, if you do rely on voice messages a lot while driving, and can convince the other parties to use Zello, it would work great on Android Auto.
