WhatsApp will soon add the ability to play voice messages at different playback speeds. Currently, the Facebook-owned company allows you to check voice messages at normal speed. This function will help those who want to listen to a voice message at a much slower or faster speed.
WABetaInfo has shared screenshots of the feature, showing that users will get three options for playback speed. These include 1.0X, 1.5X, and 2.0X. The feature will be available immediately and you will not need to go through any steps to use it. If you receive a voice message, WhatsApp will add the playback speed button.
The cited source reported that “WhatsApp would also support lower playback speeds, but they will not be released to the public because they make less sense. This feature is in development and will be available for beta versions of iOS and Android. ” WABetaInfo It also states that the feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
WhatsApp is also working on a feature called “Multiple Device Support,” which the messaging service is expected to add to its platform in the coming months. It will first be available to iOS users and then to Android WhatsApp users, according to the cited source.
WABetaInfo reported that “WhatsApp is developing two different types of multi-device with WhatsApp Web where you can use WhatsApp Web without your main phone being connected to the Internet. And multi-device with other devices where you can connect up to four different devices to your main WhatsApp account. “
Apart from this, the company is also expected to introduce “Encrypted Chat Backup” feature. WhatsApp chats are already end-to-end encrypted, but you backup your chats to a third-party app, which is Google Drive. WhatsApp plans to add a new encrypted chat backup option, which will improve user privacy and prevent their accounts from being hacked.
