Earlier this year, WhatsApp to add an option to control audio playback speed, allowing users to hear voice notes no matter how fast or slow they want. And now the company is working towards expanding the capabilities of this feature to make it compatible with forwarded audio messages, according to the famous tipster WABetainfo.
Currently, WhatsApp allows you to play voice notes at different playback speeds, but you don’t have the option to play them back while listening to a forwarded voice note. This could change as soon as the company is working on a new version of the feature, allowing users to listen to forwarded audio messages at different playback speeds.
The feature was discovered in the latest beta update of the WhatsApp iOS app and it is believed that the feature will also be introduced to Android users in an upcoming beta update. The improved audio playback feature is currently in development, which means that people who are not using the beta update cannot use it at this time.
Variable audio playback speed is a feature that a lot of tech companies introduced to their instant messaging platform before WhatsApp. For example, Telegram has had this feature for quite some time. Besides WhatsApp, Netflix also introduced the feature to its streaming platform earlier this year.
Our tipper doesn’t have a timeline as to when we can expect the improved playback feature to be available to steady WhatsApp users, but since it’s rolling out in an update beta, it won’t take long for the company to make it available to the public.
