How to Convert WhatsApp Voice Messages to Text?

WhatsApp has been a saviour in its true sense because it had integrated almost all the possible features of various social media apps into one. It started with WhatsApp calling followed by added features like video calling, sending documents, and of course, the story updates which is the latest of all.

WhatsApp is one application which has been kept up to date in the best possible way, making the users glued to just one single app rather than go to different apps for different features. Another interesting feature that WhatsApp allows you to do is send audio messages rather for all those times when you can’t type or are stuck or occupied.

However, as much of a boon the feature turns out for most of us, it often is not possible to actually hear the audio message in certain circumstances. You could be at a public place or be in a meeting, or, if not anything at all; it could be a voice note from your friend and parents are around (it could have anything and let us all agree, we do not want to risk that). In such cases, you end up waiting to get to an appropriate place or are forced to wait until you find the right time.

And, if you are someone who’s been there, and has had no option to hear that right away, well, we think we can help you. Wondering how? What if you could convert those audio messages into text? Yes, you won’t have to hear, but you could read even if they send you a voice not. Sounds like a plan?

If you are wondering how can you do that, fear not because here we are to help you out. We have listed down for you the steps to convert voice messages into text on both Android and iOS.
