WhatsApp is now more exciting to use since it received support for multiple playback speeds for voice messages. However, this new feature is only available for Android beta users at the moment.
But, WhatsApp confirmed that it could soon expand its scope for non-beta Android users. The feature was first spotted by the popular Facebook-owned app leaker called WABetaInfo. It revealed the new feature in March in WhatsApp's Android beta version 18.104.22.168.
And now, WhatsApp confirmed that the new multiple playback speed support is now available on Android 22.214.171.124.
If you are an Android beta user, you can check the new feature's availability by checking if your voice messages have the new playback speed icon.
WhatsApp's Voice Message Multiple Playback Speeds
According to Gadgets Now's latest report, the new WhatsApp capability allows users to play their voice messages at speeds of 1x, 1.5x, and even 2x. The giant messaging app said that iOS users will also receive the new feature soon.
However, the Facebook-owned application hasn't released its iOS playback speed feature's launch date yet.
Aside from this, the popular messaging app is also expected to release another update that would allow users to transfer their chat history from iOS to Android device or Android to iOS smartphone.
This new chat history transfer feature works by linking a device to another gadget that has a different operating system. However, WhatsApp hasn't confirmed yet if it is really working on the new feature or if it will really arrive in the future.
Fixing WhatsApp's Missing Media Issue
Right now, WhatsApp users are complaining that their media content is suddenly vanishing. According to Gadgets 360's latest report, this new issue had allegedly appeared together with the arrival of the app's latest updates. If you are one of the affected users, all you need to do is follow these steps:
- First, you need to close your WhatsApp and clear the cache. You also need to make sure that the app is not running in the background.
- After that, you must open your device's native file manager. Once you are there, look for the WhatsApp file and then go to the Media option.
- The next thing you need to do is to move the content to the Media folder. You can follow this path to find it: Android > Media > com.whatsapp > WhatsApp > Media
- On the other hand, you also need to remember that before you open your WhatsApp again, you still need to wait until the content is properly transferred to the Media file.
