WhatsApp already offers the ability to listen to voice messages at increased speed, but suspiciously adjustable playback speed settings are missing for audio messages.
In May 2021, WhatsApp announced new options which allow you to listen to voice messages at 1.5x and even 2x the normal playback speed. The problem was that this setting was displayed only for voice messages and not for longer recordings, classified as audio messages.
How do audio messages differ from simple voice messages? Well, any recording saved as a voice memo that you redirect to another chat becomes an audio message. At this time, it is not possible to increase the playback speed for such audio messages, as the relevant button does not appear in the application interface.
For example, some users use the option to initiate a voice message in Lock mode, as a replacement for the Voice Recorder function, recording the entire discussion during a meeting or class, which they then send to school / work colleagues, who in turn I can use the forward option to forward the recording. As these files can be quite long, the option to listen at increased speed is all the more useful.
WhatsApp promises to remove this limitation by allowing you to adjust the playback speed for all types of audio messages.
