Updated:1 month ago

New Delhi, Sep 14 (ANI): Facebook owned instant messaging service WhatsApp is reportedly developing a feature that'll offer transcriptions of received voice messages, letting users easily read what's been said without having to play it out loud. According to The Verge, the feature is currently in development for iOS. It's unclear as to when it'll hit the WhatsApp beta for iPhone users or when it'll arrive for Android. Transcriptions could let people silently see the contents of a voice message, or reference important details later without having to scrub through audio. As per The Verge, transcriptions will be saved to the device after they're created, and that a "Transcript" section will make it easy to skip to specific parts of a message. Transcribing WhatsApp voice messages is currently only possible using third-party software.
