WhatsApp Launches “Review” & “Fast Playback” Voice Message Feature

Whatsapp has rolled out a new update where we can see changes in the voice messages. It has enabled the users to listen to voice notes at different speeds like normal, 1.5x speed, and 2x speed. This feature is out for Android, iOS, and Web/desktop apps.

As per the reports, the Facebook-owned messaging platform is working on a new feature “review” voice messages before sending. At present, one can either share or delete the voice message, and you cannot edit or preview the voice note.

WhatsApp will Soon Let you Review Voice Note Before Sending

Whatsapp review voice message

According to the reports, on WABetaInfo, Whatsapp will soon allow the users to review voice messages before sending. They have shared a screenshot where we can see a new stop button while recording the message. When you press the stop button, there will be a separate button to play the note if they want to share it.

If you don’t want to send and want to record the new message then press the delete button and start a new recording. However, this feature is still under development and is not available for anyone. It will soon be available in the future update of Whatsapp.

In a statement, Whatsapp said,

“These days we need all the time-saving tips and tricks we can find. This is why voice messages on WhatsApp are a particularly useful tool for people short on time, who are multitasking, or who have friends and family in different time zones.”

Earlier this week, the company has introduced a “Fast Playback” feature. The users can change the voice speed without changing the pitch of the user’s voice. One main reason of adding this feature is because sometimes there can be a long message, and the receiver might not have time to listen to it, so they can change the speed and listen to it faster.

With this “Fast Playback” feature, the time for listening to the long messages will be reduced.

How to use the “Fast Playback” feature on Whatsapp?

It is very easy to use this feature, whenever you receive a voice message a default speed appears. Once you click on the play button, you will see 1x at the end of the message, click on it and you can change the speed to 1.5x and 2x and then click on the play button.

If you are unable to make changes, then make sure you update the app to the latest version.
