The team of the popular messenger WhatsApp has released a client update that will delight many iPhone users. The update brings a feature that Telegram and a number of other competing services have had for years.
In the fresh WhatsApp for iOS version 2.21.110, two changes are announced in the App Store:
- You can now listen to voice messages at different speeds by pressing the 1x / 1.5x / 2x button during playback.
- If you are mentioned in a chat or someone replies to your message, you will see the “@” symbol next to this group in the chat list.
About a month ago, the function of speeding up the playback of voice messages became available in the stable version of the WhatsApp messenger for Android, and before that it was tested in beta versions.
