WhatsApp voice messages feature: WhatsApp recently rolled out a major update to the voice messages feature on its platform. WhatsApp update enables users to listen to voice messages at variable speeds. Users can pick from normal speed, 1.5x speed and 2x speed. This feature is available on WhatsApp’s Android and iOS-based apps and WhatsApp Web/Desktop. Now, word is that another WhatsApp update is on the way that will make it easier for users to share voice messages.
As of now, WhatsApp users cannot edit voice messages on Facebook’s messaging platform. They can either delete a voice message or share it but as of now, there is no way to listen to a WhatsApp voice message before sharing it. Now, WABetaInfo reports that the company is working on a new feature that will do just that. Simply put, this WhatsApp feature will enable users to review voice messages before sending them.
In the new format, WhatsApp will allow users to listen to a voice message before sending it by introducing a new stop button. The screenshots shared by the blog site hints towards users getting a new stop button while recording a voice message. Every time users press the stop button, they get a separate button to play the voice message like they would if they had shared the message. This gives WhatsApp users the ability to choose if they want to continue recording their messages or start all over again. If users want to record the message again, they can press the delete button and start recording their messages again. On the other hand, if they feel the message is right, they can hit the send button to share it with the intended recipient.
