Finally, WhatsApp will get the variable playback speed option

Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple reports on incoming features for WhatsApp. While some of these features are new, others are not entirely new. According to a recent report, WhatsApp will finally add the ability to play voice messages faster or slower than real-time. This is coming to WhatsApp several years after Telegram and other apps launched the feature.


As of now, the development of this feature is still on but it will arrive soon. WhatsAppBetaInfo regularly works on beta versions of the app and it spotted this feature in development. As of now, the user interface of this feature on WhatsApp is not available. This feature is long overdue and it will obviously make users happy.

WhatsApp Sends Reminder: Accept new terms or get blocked from messaging

WhatsApp already has a new update which all its users MUST accept if they want to continue in the platform. This update was to hit the public in January. However, this didn’t happen as a result of the public outburst with regards to the somewhat controversial update. The company has now given users until May 15th to take a decision on the new terms. If you do not accept the new terms and conditions on or before this date, WhatsApp will block you from sending or receiving any messages via the platform.
As we edge closer to May 15th, the App is now sending reminders regarding the new terms and conditions. A few days ago, some users got pop-up messages just after launch the app. The pop-up message is to remind users of its new terms and privacy policy. Part of the message reads “Please accept these updates to continue using WhatsApp,”. In addition, the company has given the implication of not accepting the new terms. The company said in a blogpost
“WhatsApp will not delete your account. However, you won’t have full functionality of WhatsApp until you accept…For a short time, you’ll be able to receive calls and notifications, but won’t be able to read or send messages from the app.”
In a bid to calm users’ nerves, the company said “As a reminder, we’re building new ways to chat or shop with a business on WhatsApp that are entirely optional…Personal messages will always be end-to-end encrypted, so WhatsApp can’t read or listen to them. In the coming weeks, we’ll display a banner in WhatsApp providing more information that people can read at their own pace. We’ve also included more information to try and address concerns we’re hearing. Eventually, we’ll start reminding people to review and accept these updates to keep using WhatsApp,” the blog post explains.
