This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – WhatsApp is rolling out an update that will add new voicemail features, including the ability to listen to messages while reading other chats and even read them at 1.4 or 2 speed times.
The update, which will be available to all users in the coming weeks, will also allow you to pause and resume your recordings while making voice messages. You can also read them before sending them. WhatsApp not only improves the way you create and listen to voicemail messages, but also how they look, introducing a visual waveform representation of sound over a voicemail message to help you follow along.
WhatsApp, owned by Meta, said its users send around 7 billion voice messages a day in the chat app. The audio feature, which was first launched in 2013, is also commonly referred to as voice notes. This basically allows Whatsapp users to hold conversations faster and easier. It’s even an accessibility tool for users who prefer to avoid typing but still want to communicate with friends and loved ones using WhatsApp.
