WhatsApp is one of the most used text messaging applications in the world due to its ease of use and large number of users. They frequently enable new options to improve the user experience. For example, a few weeks ago the option to play voice audios at double or faster speed was activated and now it allows us to program messages in our conversations within the app.

However, this function is only available for iPhone users, since the new update of iOS 15.1 is what allows to have this novelty. The new version of the operating system maintains an image similar to its previous version; however, they added some sections such as notifications and minor redesigns.
