Successful GW detection and observations of coalescing binary neutron star (NS-NS) system across a spectrum of electromagnetic waves (EM) elevated multimessenger astronomy to the next stage. Future generations of GW detectors on the ground and in the space will yield a significant statistics of such events reaching up to redshift z=5 and even deeper. Non-negligible ammount of such events has a chance of being strongly lensed. I will summarize and discuss new opportunities emerging from future detections of lensed GW signals. Wave phenomena concerning lensed GW signals, like diffraction fringes and beat patterns will be presented.
