In other news, Whatsapp is testing a ‘voice message transcription’ feature for iOS devices. Once the feature is rolled out, you will have the option to transcribe your voice message and save it locally on the device. As per the report, your voice messages won’t be sent to WhatsApp, instead, Apple will use its speech recognition technology to transcribe a message.


The feature will be optional and before you start using it, special permission will be required. When the message is transcribed for the first time, the transcription is saved locally in the WhatsApp database so that it can be used later.
