Whatsapp is testing new Playback features for audio files | Digit


If you frequently use Whatsapp’s voice note feature, then here’s some good news for you. The messaging app is testing new features that will allow users to change the playback speed of the voice notes to suit their needs. Currently, there’s no way to speed up a voice note – you have to manually drag the marker forward to reach different parts of the message.

What will this new Whatsapp feature do?

According to Wabetainfo, one of the most reliable tipsters when it comes to news related to Whatsapp, the messaging app is testing a feature that allows you to increase the playback speed of the message by 1.5x and 2x the speed. However, there is no way to slow down the message. That is something that may come along with a future update. 

In May, Whatsapp had introduced a feature that allows people to speed through extremely long messages so that one could get to the meat faster. However, the functionality is not available for every single message. For those who have friends who send long-winded messages quite frequently, this can end up being a boon.

Other Whatsapp Updates

Whatsapp is working on a host of other updates to improve user experience. Some of these include a new communities feature that will work like Discord, new icons and emojis, and more. As far as voice messages goes, Whatsapp is also working on a few updates that will allow users to exit the chat while listening to voice messages so that they can scroll through their other messages while the same is playing. Currently, if you exit the chat while listening to a voice note, the voice stops playing and you have to start listening to it from the beginning. You can manually forward the marker to listen from a different spot, but it’s still tedious.
