There are those who love them and those who hate them, voice messages are one of the most talked about functions for Whatsapp. For some time protagonists of the messaging apps, they have now fully implemented the use of the voice as an alternative to the text, with the disapproval of someone, forced to listen to long monologues and stories.
There are those who suffer them in silence, those who refuse to listen beyond a certain time limit and those who, on the other hand, could speak and listen for hours to what one has to say on the other side.
Sending a voice message on Whatsapp is really very simple. To record, just press the microphone icon next to the writing field and hold down while recording. At that point you have two options.
To play a voice message just press the "play" button and, with the new updates, you can also speed up the playback of the voice message to listen to it faster.
If you usually travel on public vehicles or, in general, do not use headphones, don't worry, you won't be forced to listen to your audio publicly.
You can listen to your voice messages as if you were on a normal phone call. To do so, nothing complex in this case either. Just press the “play” button on the message and then hold the phone close to your ear as you would when you are on the phone. Immediately the audio of the smartphone speaker is muted and you can listen to the message without making it heard by everyone.
In a world divided in two, between those who cannot live without them and those who would rather return to dear old written messages, the Whatsapp team tries to find a compromise and restore peace.
In fact, it seems that, after the function that allows you to listen to the audio at double speed, they are working on another novelty, what is it? Nothing but afunction that will allow you to transcribe the voice message.
The transcription would be optional and, more importantly, it requires explicit permission to be activated. Once granted, we move on to the actual section of the transcription. The transcribed message is saved in the WhatsApp database, so it is not necessary to perform the operation again if you want to see it later.
The feature is not yet active in the test versions but, it will come with a beta version, although it has not yet been confirmed when. On the other hand, the arrival of another useful feature is more certain and defined: encrypted backups will arrive in a few weeks, as confirmed by Mark Zuckerberg himself at the end of last week.
