WhatsApp messenger is one of the most widely used mobile app on both the Android and iOS platforms. Billions of conversations are exchanged daily between people from all over the world.
One of the features available on the WhatsApp chat application is the Voice Note. Usually known as VN, this function is used to send messages to individuals or groups in the audio format.
While it always easier for the sender (because it carries all the emotions and emphasis which cannot be conveyed by mere text), it could pose as a big problem for the recipient of the message. This could be because the recipient might be in a noisy area as at the time he received the message or in an environment not conducive in general.
In such a situation, the use of Voice Note or VN (as it is popularly called) would not sound particularly interesting. But did you know there is a way to convert that Voice note message to text? Well, upon discovering this function, I tapped into its vast potentials.
This function is can only be enabled through a 3rd party app. There are a lot of these apps on play store. A very popular one is the Transcriber for WhatsApp. So all you need to do is install this app and follow a few steps. In this article, I would be taking you through some of these steps:
