    I have been having issues with voice notes on iOS 10. Whenever I receive a voice note in WhatsApp or Telegram and I raise the phone to my ear to listen, the screen goes black and the voice note stops.

    I was able to do this previously but not able to do it of late. Any reasons why this would change?

    I'm using a iPhone 7 on iOS beta 5

    No idea. I'll poke around, see what I can find on that. In the mean time, have you tried using earphones for that?
    It sounds like an issue with the proximity sensor. It thinks you're making a phone call. Try Reset All Settings.
    Reset All Settings
    Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.
    And remember, you're on beta. Could be a beta issue.

    Found a solution. I played a voice message through my headphones and plugged it out mid playing and it now plays when I raise it to my ear.
