How to Change WhatsApp Voice Message Speed

You can change the playback speed of the voice messages on WhatsApp.

It is because of the “Fast Playback” feature. Using this feature reduces the time you listen to the WhatsApp voice notes.

It offers three playback speed options: 1x, 1.5x, and 2x.

The 1x is the default one, and you can use the other options if you want to increase the playback speed.

Note that WhatsApp doesn’t offer the option to slow down the playback speed.

Let’s see how to use this feature. I use Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), iPhone, and Windows 11 PC.

Change Playback Speed of WhatsApp Voice Messages

Here are the steps if you’re using Android or iPhone:

In the WhatsApp Messenger app, open the chat with the voice message.

Play the voice note, and you can now see the current playback speed 1x.

Hit it, and you’ll have a playback speed of 1.5x.

Hit 1.5x to have 2x speed, and tap the latter to have the 1x.

That’s all. Remember, the one you set for the voice message will remain until you change.

If you’re using the WhatsApp Desktop app or Web, follow these steps:

Open the WhatsApp Web or Desktop app. Hit the chat, which has the voice note.

Play the voice message, and you see the 1x, the current playback speed.

Hit it to increase the playback speed. When you hit the 2x, you’ll have the 1x speed.

Remember, the one you set for the voice message will remain until you change.

That’s it.
