There are two things in WhatsApp that look similar but are actually different. Voice messages are one thing. Another is audio messages. Voice messages are those that we record and then send to someone. Audio messages on WhatsApp are communication that we have made and that are then relayed to other people. However, there is a new feature that just arrived in audio messages on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp gets new audio messages!
In May, WhatsApp made available the ability to change the playback speed of voice messages. So it is possible to change the playback speed to 1.5x or 2x. Very useful when going through very long messages. The same will happen with audio messages now.
But what are audio messages? For example, if we forward a voice memo to another conversation, it becomes an audio message. At this point it was not yet possible to change the speed in this case. But the time will come soon.
However, and beyond that, it would be interesting that we can slow down the playback speed. This helped people with hearing problems.
But that’s not the only news on the WhatsApp route
Over time, people have always asked Facebook to add reactions to WhatsApp. Now you’ve finally heard that feedback. In fact, the green chat platform is already adding the feature to Android and iOS and we can already see how it will work thanks to the WaBetainfo website.
As you can see in the screenshot above, this company has added a new option to their settings that allows you to control whether we want to receive notifications of responses to messages we send. Interestingly, this function came by accident temporarily, but was removed again very quickly.
According to Leak, a message can have an infinite number of reactions. However, we can choose any emoji from a selection box. However, if the number is greater than 999, it will read about 999+. In the meantime, users can see the full list of users who responded to the message.
This novelty is still under development and it is not known for sure when it will reach all users. However, since it has already appeared in the beta version of Android, it will likely happen faster than expected.
But there is one more feature on the way to WhatsApp. It’s just that we can choose who sees our status online. This is unquestionably great news for those looking for more privacy. That way, we don’t have to make decisions that cover everyone, but rather make the decisions on a more personal basis and only block those that interest us. Or rather, who doesn’t interest us so much. It is actually a novelty that WhatsApp thinks about the boring ones.
