WhatsApp is working on voice messages playback speed and multi-device support

WhatsApp continues its old way of cloning the features of competing apps and bringing them into its own apps to gain more users or keep existing apps, and after copying the statuses feature from Snapchat and the self-destructing feature of media and messages from Signal, it seems that the time has come to copy the multi-devices and Voice Messages Playback Speed features from Telegram too.
WABetaInfo, the website that is known for the new WhatsApp features before it becomes available to the public managed to discover two new under-development  features in the new update (version that WhatsApp sent via TestFlight beta to iOS users and these features are the voice messages play speed, and WhatsApp Web Beta, Two features that were previously launched for Android beta testers

The first feature allows changing the playback speed of voice messages, allowing users to speed up it by clicking on the speed sticker located below the sender profile picture that appears next to the voice message (see images below), and the users will have three different operating speeds to choose from 1.0X, 1.5X and 2.0X.

WhatsApp Web Beta is a new beta program from WhatsApp, and it's part of multi-device functionality that will be available for other portable devices in the future. If you choose to join this beta program, you can link up to four desktop devices at once, and you'll be able to use WhatsApp on the Web or on desktop applications without having to connect your phone to the Internet.

This means that once your phone is connected with the WhatsApp application on your computer or Mac, or with Web WhatsApp, you will not be able to keep your phone connected to the Internet to use your computer, and your conversations will be synchronized between all your devices, so you can access them even if you do not You have your phone with you.

Those two new features, as I said, are still under-development, and they are not available to test yet, but they should appear on the beta version of WhatsApp on Android and iOS in the coming weeks or months.
