To allow users to increase the playback speed of voice messages, Facebook-owned WhatsApp has rolled out a new ‘Fast Playback’ feature aimed at those who rely on long voice messages.

‘Fast Playback’ WhatsApp new feature.
Above all, Social media is not just a spoke on the wheel of marketing. It’s becoming the way entire bicycles are built. That was earlier when we used to get up with the help of an alarm clock. Nowadays, social media notification takes its place. At a time when we are totally indulged with social media.
WhatsApp is adding a new feature called ‘Fast Playback’ for all voice messages. Audio or voice-based messages are popular features on the app, especially for users who might not be tech-savvy or comfortable typing on their smartphones. The Fast Playback message will let users change the playback speed setting for a voice message.
According to a statement from the company, users will be able to choose between the default 1x setting, 1.5x speed, or 2x speed, without changing the pitch of someone’s voice. WhatsApp says one reason it is adding this feature is that sometimes when users send a very long message, the other party might not have the time to listen.
It says that introducing Fast Playback, which speeds up the message, will reduce the time it takes to listen to those long voice messages.
WhatsApp is no more a noun; it is a verb. Users don’t just say, “send it to me on WhatsApp.” The more frequently used phrase is “WhatsApp me.” This is how much dependent most are on the app. Nowadays, Relying on apps to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds. If you put a key under the mat for the cops, a burglar can find it too, although criminals are using every technology tool at their disposal to hack into people’s accounts. If they know there’s a key hidden somewhere, they won’t stop until they find it.
The Bottom Line
You will see the playback speed appear when you get a voice message, which is set to 1x by default. Touch the speed to increase the speed to 1.5x or 2x. Then press play.
In a word, We should point out that the messages on 2x do sound very odd. Make sure you are on the latest version of WhatsApp to get the feature.
