It goes without saying that At a functional level, Telegram is a much more complete application than WhatsApphowever, this continues to have the great advantage that it was the first to arrive, or at least, the first to become popular within the entire society, and it is already known that it is very difficult for human beings to change when something more or less does what we need.
However, as we said, it is not just that Telegram has more functions, it is that these continue to grow over time, which causes WhatsApp also has to get the batteries so as not to remain so distanced from its competition, hence a novelty has been known this week that many users will find wonderful.
Audio transcription comes to WhatsApp
The last whatsapp beta version has included a function that will certainly be great for all those users who need to use the accessibility controls of certain apps in order to communicate. in the end the Transcription from audio to text It is not just one more option that the vast majority of us can use, but it is a really important facility for many other users who have mobility problems.
The operation is really simple, since the user will only have to say the message he wants to send, and the app itself will take care of transform that audio into written text. Now, as we have mentioned before, it is a function that is being tested, that is, it is a beta version of what will surely end up arriving, hopefully soon, to all users.
For now, one of the limitations is that it is only capable of transcribing messages that are in the same language in which the application is configured, so if you have the app in Spanish and want to use this function to send a message in English, we are sorry to tell you that for now you won’t be able to do it.
Of course, something that can worry users a lot is the privacyWell, it seems that this new function works so that the audio that users make so that the app transcribes them into text does not come out of the device itself, a really positive point that must be taken into account when using it. In addition, it must be taken into account that this function will reach all WhatsApp users, which is a great advantage over Telegram, which already has it, but only for users who pay for the Premium version. Of course, at the moment it is only available in the iOS versionso Android users will have to wait to take advantage of audio-to-text transcription.
