iOS 16 includes updated voice messages feature with new fast forward and rewind options
Apple announced three important updates to Messages with iOS 16, including the ability to undo sent messages, mark messages and conversations as unread, and edit sent messages, however, another equally important Messages update is coming with iOS 16, but this one seems to have missed out on the fanfare.
With iOS 16, Apple is updating its voice messages feature to make it easier to record and listen to audio clips sent through iMessage. For instance, when recording a voice message, users can go hands-free with one tap, removing the need to have their finger pressed down on the microphone icon to record a message.
While the message is recording, a new option to swipe up and go full screen shows the user an animation of their voice message as it is being recorded, and when listening back to a received voice message the user can fast forward and rewind with a swipe.
