WhatsApp to let users transcribe audio messages into text

Popular messaging app WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will enable users to audio messages into text

The new functionality will enable users to read transcripts of audio messages if they do not wish to listen to them

WABetaInfo recently noted the code in the latest beta version of WhatsApp for iPhone, which identifies the content of audio message and transcribes it into text

There are, however, some limitations as the feature is still in early beta

As of now, transcriptions are unavailable for unidentified words or in a different language set as default

Transcripts will be processed on the user's device and won't be uploaded to WhatsApp or Apple servers, ensuring user privacy

The transcription feature is currently only available on iPhones and isn't clear when it will debut for Android phones

Just recently, WhatsApp introduced new features to the app such as status reactions, voice status, and link previews on status, along with a tool that will help users message themselves
