WhatsApp has officially announced the launch of playback speeds for voice messages. This feature on WhatsApp voice messages has been available for public beta users, and it started rolling out to more users last month. It is now available for all users on WhatsApp. There are three playback speed options to choose from for voice messages.

WhatsApp announced the new feature on Twitter. Users can listen to WhatsApp voice messages at three different speeds including the normal speed, 1.5x speed, and 2x speed. WhatsApp voice messages will play at normal speed by default. This feature has been rolling out to users since last month, and it should be available to all by now. If you haven't received it you can update to the latest version of WhatsApp on the Google Play Store or App Store. It also works on WhatsApp Web and the desktop app.
