As for dictation: Whatsapp continues to work on voice messages
This includes the possibility to listen to voice messages again in the future before sending them, as the meta daughter informs. Also new: A visualization of the message as a waveform diagram with level deflections. This makes it easier to find certain places in the message, for example.
Finally speeding up overlong Sprachis
Two more upcoming features should make it easier to deal with long voice messages. On the one hand, this is the fast playback of forwarded messages. The playback speed can be increased by one and a half or two times.
On the other hand, the possibility of continuing to listen to messages that have only partially been listened to at the last location when you return to the respective chat. Whatsapp did not initially say when exactly which feature will be available on iPhones or Androids. The introduction of the features will be successful “in the next few weeks”.
