WhatsApp is testing a new feature to allow users to change the playback speed of voice notes. Although a similar feature was spotted last month, the option was only under development. 

According to WhatsApp updates tracker, WABetaInfo, the beta channel for Android, has added three playback speed options - 1x, 1.5x and 2x. Notably, there is still no option for a slower playback speed for voice messages. 

The availability details for stable channels remain unclear, though, given the latest development, the Facebook-owned platform may rollout playback speed in the coming months.

The report notes that voice notes on WhatsApp will continue to play at normal speed by default, and users will need to set the option manually. The voice note bubble is now getting a new icon that consists of the three playback speed options. 

Although the feature does not bring a substantial change, many WhatsApp users would still be happy to have additional options. Playback speeds have existed on several video platforms like YouTube, Dailymotion, and more, for years.
