Voice Messages at Variable Speeds- A feature Inspired by Telegram
It seems that this new feature will reach users in the upcoming update and Android users will be the first ones to receive it followed by iOS users. While WhatsApp is usually the role model for other messaging apps to follow, unexpectedly this feature is already launched by Telegram back in 2018, which enables users to play voice messages with 2x speeds. While it’s clear that WhatsApp is going to copy this feature from its rival, time will tell how the company will implement it differently on its platform.
