WhatsApp recently introduced a feature that lets you speed up voice messages you have received. This is a really great feature to have since it essentially saves you time when you are listening to long-ish voice notes. And that’s not all, The Facebook-owned messaging platform has some other plans lined up for this voice messages feature as well, and there’s one that we just got to know about and it is super helpful.
Just like we’ve often sent text messages by mistake, that same has happened with voice messages too. While you can delete a text message for both yourself and the person you have sent it to, you can also do the same for a voice note. Additionally, WhatsApp is soon going to let you listen to your voice message before sending it. The platform is working on this feature currently for Android users and it was submitted in a WhatsApp beta update for Android 22.214.171.124. This feature should roll out for Android users soon. iOS users do not need to worry though, this feature is already under development for iOS services as WABetaInfo reported, the work for Android devices has just begun.
While the option to review voice messages has been available on WhatsApp, it is a cumbersome process. The new voice message review feature will make it easier to get this done. With this new feature, users will be able to hear the voice message every time they hit the stop button, as WABetaInfo explained. For now, there is a cancel button that deletes the entire voice message. This will be changed to a stop button once this feature rolls out.
