Today is the big day: WhatsApp is still working on the feature, so it’s under development and it’s not ready for the public, but we can finally show a preview.
📝 WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52: what’s new?
WhatsApp is working on 3 different playback speeds for voice messages, with a nice UI!
The feature is under development and it will be available later for iOS and Android beta builds.

The UI is very nice and WhatsApp will allow to change the playback speed simply tapping the speed label: 1.0X, 1.5X and 2.0X are the available options. WhatsApp would also support lower playback speeds, but they won’t be released for the public because they make less sense.
This feature is under development and it will be available for both iOS and Android beta builds in the next few weeks: stay tuned!
