WhatsApp is a very famous messaging application all over the world. Thus, the company is always working to provide new features to the users for better experience and performance. By releasing the new WhatsApp beta update, the company first tests the feature with beta testers. After that, it will release the stable version.
According to the information, WhatsApp has now started rolling out a new beta update through the Google Play Beta Program, which carries build number 126.96.36.199. The update clearly mentions that the company is now developing a new version of the feature to make it compatible with audio messaging.
Talking about the audio messages, then it is forwarded voice note. When you forward a voice note, you cannot speed up the audio because the playback speed button is not available, but a new feature will be introduced later.
