We have heard about a lot of beta features in WhatsApp that are ready to launch on the stable global platform in a couple of weeks and months. Now, reports have started coming in about a new feature for iOS which would allow the iPhone users to change the voice messages into text in WhatsApp. We already know that WhatsApp will be encrypting all types of messages on their platform in the future, be it messages or voice messages. However, the voice-to-text feature was only found recently for the iOS version.
As per the reports from WABetaInfo, which is trusted to provide the beta details of WhatsApp features, iPhone users will soon get a new update on their smartphones which allows voice to be converted to messages. It is currently in development and will soon be available for users on the iOS platform under the beta program. As per reports, they will not be sending the voice chats to Facebook servers and the transformation will take place on the device itself, which will make it a lot more safe and secure.
When the voice is converted to a message in the app, it is saved in the local library of the app on the smartphone and can be used almost immediately the next time. So the conversion process does not need to be done every time. It would require WhatsApp to have the access to speech recognition technology of Apple or their engine, which can be a concern for people who are worried about data sharing and security. The functionality will also be available on Android in the coming months.
