Some weeks ago, we have announced that WhatsApp was releasing multiple playback speeds when you listen to voice messages: 1x, 1.5x and 2.0x.
Everyone liked this feature, but some users asked for more: the possibility to transcribe voice messages when they cannot listen to them.
This isn’t currently planned as a new WhatsApp feature, but we can consider some third party alternatives.
Transcriber for WhatsApp is an unofficial app that promises to convert a WhatsApp voice message to text and it supports several languages.
How does it work? The Transcriber app uses Wit.ai services to generate the text from a voice message.
After downloading the app, open it to configure its settings and you’re ready to use it:
- Select a voice message in a WhatsApp chat.
- Tap the Share button.
- Export the selected voice message to the Transcriber app.
- Wait a few seconds and the transcription is ready.
In our opinion, it’s useful when you cannot listen to a voice message and you can generate its transcription using this app.
