WhatsApp is gradually implementing more and more news. In recent months, we have witnessed the biggest facelift, at least in those missed key functions.
Voice notes are a fundamental part of how WhatsApp works. However, they are not received with the same liking by all users. This is because too many voice notes can be received during the day, taking the time to listen to each one. And although in recent months, the possibility of accelerating voice notes has been activated, it is still not enough for many users or WhatsApp.
No Need To Listen To Voice Memos
For this reason, and according to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is beginning to implement voice notes. This means that when they send us a voice note, it will be processed, and we will be able to see in-text what has arrived in the form of audio. At the moment, this function is being tested on iOS, something that is usually common since many of the parts are not implemented in the two operating systems simultaneously.
However, and although the function has been revealed, there are still many doubts in the air. One of the main ones is to understand how the audio will be quiet and returned to voice. According to the source, the audio must be sent to an external server for transcription. However, the audio does not go through Facebook, but Apple will process it and return the transcript. However, the details about this processing, privacy, permissions, etc … have not been disclosed.
First On iPhone
The transcription of the voice memos will be displayed on the screen as long as they have been successfully processed. Keep in mind that this is an optional function but that it will undoubtedly be very useful for many users, who will be able to know at a glance what a voice note can take longer to tell us. Once again, we do not know if Android will receive this novelty simultaneously or it will arrive exclusively on the iPhone. What cannot be known right now is an approximate date of implantation so that we will remain attentive to this and other interesting WhatsApp news.
