Whether due to lack of time or even laziness, many people prefer to communicate through audio messages on WhatsApp.
The feature is extremely popular, not only among personal account users, but also among companies that use the app as a customer service channel.
Since the end of February, usage of the app has increased by 148% worldwide. It is the highest rate among the various service channels normally offered to the customer, which are: online chat, comments on social networks, SMS, e-mail and telephone. This information was released by Zendesk, a company that has a service platform in the cloud, in its study called Benchmark Snapshot.
The big problem is that users are not always able to send objective and short audios, which can take up a lot of time.
This situation becomes even more difficult for companies, as they need to manage dozens of messages and not be able to waste time listening to long recordings.
Now, can you imagine what it would be like if there was a way to speed up WhatsApp audios, saving your time in service? Well, it seems that only the application itself has not thought about it yet.
But if you use WhatsApp Web or if your cell phone has an Android system, and you want to learn how to speed up voice messages, this post will help you with this problem.
