Learn how to turn WhatsApp audios into texts | Technology

No time to listen to the endless audios they send you on WhatsApp? Know that there are ways to transcribe the audios you receive in the app. Although the messenger does not have a native feature, it is possible to use third-party tools.

With that in mind, g1 has gathered three options that convert WhatsApp audios into text and a step-by-step guide on how to use them. The list includes apps for Android and iPhone, as well as an assistant that works in the messaging app itself.

The service “ViraTexto”, from the company Take Blip, offers a chatbot that works as a contact within WhatsApp. He receives the audio and manages to reply with another message transformed into text.

The tool does the transcription for free and accepts audios of up to 4 minutes. It is only available for voice messages in Portuguese.

According to Take Blip’s director of research and innovation Milton Stiilpen, all data received by the chatbot “is treated confidentially and stored securely”.

Because it is an external tool, some users may have privacy concerns. Take Blip reported that the “ViraTexto contact on WhatsApp is a verified account, that is, it has the green seal that guarantees that this is an official account”.
