Is that realistic to try and connect to public open wifi while travelling in Israel or not so prevalent?
I can't imagine they have blanketed wifi all over the country

Speaking of WhatsApp, the beta version finally added a 1x 1.5x and 2x option for listening to voicenotes. It's well implemented and works great!

This is a great Telegram feature copied after only 3 years. Next they need to copy the ability to select another chat while listening to a voice note. Hopefully not another 3 more years.

It's unbelievable how much longer it takes for them to update features (especially compared to telegram).
They don't seem to be heading that direction, they recently stopped allowing you to view images while recording a voicenote (it seems that now that's back to working)

ETA
It now pauses the voicenote, which means if you wanted to describe a picture you sent you can't simply open it and speak.

Officially it's hard to implement due to e2e encryption

I don't believe that's true with whatsapp, certainly not with most apps. Developers usually prioritize IOS.

Is there anyway to whatsapp a number without first saving it?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
