When you have little to say, or you have some time to spare, you’ll go ahead and type out your WhatsApp message. But, when it’s just faster to get your message across in an audio message, you don’t hesitate to use that option.
But, when you get an audio message with the info you need to write down, it can be annoying when the person says the information too fast that you can’t write it all out. This only makes you have to listen to the audio again, and this can be annoying, especially when the audio message is a long one.
How to Speed up or Slow down WhatsApp Audios
To control the speed of your WhatsApp audios, you’re going to need an app called TalkFaster. The app has a simple interface that won’t confuse you with too many features. It gets the job done by giving you different options on how fast or slow your WhatsApp audios play.
When you first launch the app, it’ll take you through a brief tutorial on how to use the app. When you’re done going through the instructions, the final step will be to try out the app so it’ll open WhatsApp for you.
Open the chat that contains the audio you want to try out and long-press on the audio to select it. Tap on the share icon and choose the TalkFaster app.
When the audio opens in the TalkFaster, the audio will start playing at an average speed. If you want to audio to play slower, choose the option X0.75, X1.00, or X1.25. To speed things up a little, select the option to the right; X1.75 or X2.00.
You’ll see an option to pause the audio, and at the bottom right, there’s an option to sleep the parts where the person is not speaking. This option comes in handy if the person that’s sending you the audio has the tendency of pausing way too much before they pick up on an idea.
When you’re done using the app, it the main page it’ll show you how much time you saved by listening to the audio using TalkFaster and not at an average speed on WhatsApp. On the app, there’s no option to remove the ad that you’ll see when playing the audio. Usually, apps have an option to remove ads by buying the ad-free version.
If you have that friend that takes forever to get to the point of the message, this app is going to come in handy. Or, you might have that friend that needs to start drinking decaf to calm down a bit; either way, thanks to this app, you’ll have everything under control. Don’t forget to share your thoughts on the app.
