WhatsApp to Introduce Voice Message Transcription Feature for Android Users.

WhatsApp is set to roll out a new feature for Android users that will allow them to transcribe voice messages, a functionality that has been available to iOS users for nearly a year.

The upcoming feature, currently in development, was revealed through code found in WhatsApp Beta for Android version, as detailed by TheSpAndroid's @AssembleDebug.

Once enabled, the feature will utilize the device's speech recognition software to transcribe voice messages into text. However, it's worth noting that enabling transcription will require a 150MB download.

Privacy remains a top priority, with WhatsApp ensuring end-to-end encryption for voice transcripts, safeguarding user privacy even when messages are converted into text.

Users can expect to find the feature conveniently located within the Settings > Chats menu once it becomes available.

While there's no specific release date provided, the feature could potentially be introduced in future WhatsApp beta releases.

With this addition, WhatsApp aims to level the playing field with competitors like Telegram and Google Messages, both of which already offer transcription tools on Android.

Though the full extent of the feature's capabilities is yet to be revealed, it undoubtedly brings a new level of convenience to WhatsApp users on Android, enhancing their messaging experience.
