Gadget Insights: WhatsApp has launched playback speeds for voice messages. The feature on WhatsApp voice messages that has been available for public beta users, is now available to more users from last month. It is now available for all users on WhatsApp. Users have three playback speed options to choose from for their voice messages.
WhatsApp announced the new feature on Twitter that users can listen to WhatsApp voice messages at different speeds from the normal to 2x speeds. If you haven’t received the feature yet, try updating to the latest version of WhatsApp on the Google Play Store or App Store. The feature is also available for WhatsApp Desktop.
The new WhatsApp playback speed icon will be visible in a voice message. Tap the icon to change the playback speeds, first tap will be to increase the speed by 1.5x and the second one by 2x. But, mind it that is no feature to play voice messages at a slower than default speed yet. Though it seems to be a minor update, it is indeed useful for users at times.
WhatsApp is said to working on more features that are confirmed to roll out very soon. The biggest feature coming to WhatsApp this year will be the multi-device support of the application that lets users use WhatsApp in up to four devices without active internet connection on the main device.
