Change WhatsApp Voice Messages to Text

WhatsApp-the biggest messaging platform-has made waves worldwide since it was officially launched in 2009. In 2020, the company reached a major milestone of acquiring 2 billion users and the number keeps rising. No doubt, there is something extraordinary about the application as evidenced by the fast-rising number of people downloading the application.

Whatsapp users are spoilt for choice when it comes to ways in which they can communicate with others. Users can text message, voice call, video call or even send voice notes which can be listened to by the recipient. When it comes to voice notes,  sometimes it might be harder for the recipient to listen to the audio notes because of background noise. However, there is a simple trick you can apply in order to get past this if getting a pair of headphones or going to a much quieter place is out of the question.  WhatsApp did not officially launch this feature but here is how to go about it.

Follow the instructions below.

  • To start off, download and install the APK for Transcriber for WhatsApp from here on your device.
