How to Convert WhatsApp Voice Message into Text

There are some situations where you cannot listen to the WhatsApp voice message. For instance, you are in a Theatre, and you do not have a headphone with you.

In such cases, converting WhatsApp voice message into text comes handy.

WhatsApp does not have the built-in option for this task, and third-party apps are the only way to go. Without further ado, let us see the steps.

Convert WhatsApp Voice Message into Text

Install and open the Transcriber for WhatsApp app. Tap three vertical dots at the top right and then hit Settings. Play with the options as per your wish.

Once you are done, open WhatsApp. Open the chat with the voice message that you want to convert to text.

Long press the voice message.

Tap the Share icon at the top. Now you can see many options. Two options belong to this app. The first one plays the voice message and the second one converts voice message to text.

First Option

Choose Play voice message in incognito. Provide permission. In the pop-up, tap the Play icon to play the voice message.

Second Option

Choose Transcribe. In the pop-up, tap Show permissions. Provide permission. That is all. The app will begin the process. Once it is done, you can see the text.


The app does the task well. But I got the error like the server is down when I try this app.
