As of today, in the world of social networks, WhasApp occupies the third position with its two billion users, a little below Facebook and YouTube, which are the market leaders. as reported by DataReportal.
Taking these data into account, we are talking about a social network that, in short, has changed the way people communicate today, one that is much more immediate and with a much greater reach.
However, despite the fact that it is the leading platform, the rise of other services, such as instant messaging, has allowed WhatsApp lose a significant number of users, which is why the social network owned by Meta constantly continues to update in order to capture more users globally.

At the moment, as we already mentioned, this update is available for some iOS users, although it is also intended to be released for Android devices; However, it is still unknown when this feature will reach the millions of users who use WhatsApp on a daily basis.
With this implementation, it seems that WhatsApp would be dealing a significant blow, since it is one of the tools that Internet users have requested the most, who sometimes even pay other services to transcribe audio messages.
However, not all messages can be transcribed and, in fact, the social network will warn when an audio cannot be transcribed.
