Use WhatsApp Voice playback and move forward soon

While analysing the generation of communication, the voice chat will be the best part of all the techniques types followed for communication. The users have been frustrated in typing their thoughts because you already know that words would not be the medium to express thoughts. However, apps like Telegram are focusing on the features to attract people. Now WhatsApp is getting ready to give additional features for voice messages. Now WhatsApp again kept them live in the app market. 

Voice playback 

The voice-related features are now in the emerging phase, which may be the future for all the development. Now the new feature called “Voice Playback” is in progress. WhatsApp allows its users to hear the voice message at three different speeds 1.0x, 1.5x and 2.0x. The feature was spotted by WABetaInfo a day ago. The screenshots displayed confirms that this feature will be available for both iOS and Android users. 

Playback Speed

WhatsApp announces the possibility to introduce three different speeds 1.0x, 1.5x and 2.0x. It should be stated that WhatsApp is working on adding two playback speeds. The actual voice message will work in default 1.0x speed already. The 1.5x option will play the voice 50% faster than actual. Like that, the 2.0x plays double time faster than the original.  

 How it works

The indicator will be under the profile photo of the voice message as per the screenshot received. Users can adjust the speed of the voice message by tapping on the playback icon. A single tap will play the voice message at 1.5x speed and a double-tap will move to the speed of 2.0x. Both WhatsApp and iOS would have the same icons for playback speed.

While revealing the android version screenshots posted, it would have an additional playback speed called “Lower playback speed”. Think, this option would not be available longer in the rollout to be done in a few days.


The iOS version will hold two features WhatsApp Web beta and playback speed for voice messages. Also, the Android version will have the same feature in the rollout to be made. The new version would be available for both users in a few days.  

Is It suitable?

Yes, the maximum playback speed would be sufficient for the users who were not interested in hearing long voice notes and also the user in hurry. However, it can be played at 1.0x speed by default. So, it is not mandatory to increase the playback speed and depends on user choice.
