WhatsApp new multi-device capability

Highlights:

  • WhatsApp introduces playback speeds for voice messages.
  • This feature is available only to Android WhatsApp beta users.
  • There’s no option for a slower playback speed for voice messages.

WhatsApp is finally rolling out the ability to listen to voice messages at different playback speeds to beta users on Android. The Facebook-owned company lets you check out voice messages at normal speed. This feature will help those who want to hear a voice message at a much slower or faster speed.

Tapping the button changes the speed to the next option. This should come in very handy for situations when you’d need a recap and just want to skim through the voice note, or when a group spams voice notes and you just want to churn through to see if you missed anything important.

WhatsApp beta users who are part of the test will see the playback speed symbol in a voice message. There are three playback speeds of 1x, 1.5x and 2x. The voice message will play normally but once you tap on the icon the speed will change. So the first tap will be to increase the speed by 1x, the second one by 1.5x and the third one by 2x. There’s no option for a slower playback speed for voice messages.

If you are part of the beta group, note that the feature is seeing a server-side activation for a few users only and not the entire beta group. Here’s hoping that WhatsApp also works on fixing some of its easily exploitable vulnerabilities.

Apart from this, the company is also expected to introduce the “Encrypted Chat Backup” feature. WhatsApp chats are already end-to-end encrypted, but you back up your chats on a third-party app, which is Google Drive. WhatsApp is planning to add a new encrypted chat backup option, which will improve user privacy and save your accounts from getting hacked.

If you are part of the beta group, note that the feature is seeing a server-side activation for a few users only and not the entire beta group. Here’s hoping that WhatsApp also works on fixing some of its easily exploitable vulnerabilities.
