WhatsApp has introduced a way to send text messages without having to physically type them out.
This new method is called Dictation, and lets you speak messages into your mobile’s microphone then translates it into text.
It’s not always convenient to physically type out messages.
As a matter of fact, it can often be slower if you’re trying to tell someone a lot of in formation very quickly which is why voice messages are now so popular.
But not everyone likes receiving voice messages, because it’s not always convenient to listen to them.
That’s why WhatsApp has now added a speech-to-text feature that will turn your spoken words into a text message. Alright enough of long stories let me quickly show you how you can send Whatsapp text messages without typing them
How To Send Whatsapp Text Messages Without Typing Them.
Step 1. Through the use of Dictation. Dictation helps you speak messages into your mobile phone then translates it into a text
How to use WhatsApp Dictation
The Dictation feature was added in the latest WhatsApp update, and is available on both iPhone and Android.
Firstly, go into the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and make sure you’ve got the latest version of WhatsApp installed.
Then follow these steps:
1. Open WhatsApp
2. Open a chat with the contact you want to speak to
3. Open up the chat keyboard, where you’d normally type messages
4. Look for a microphone icon (not the one next to the chat bar): On Android, it’s black and at the top right, and on iPhone it’s in the very bottom right of the screen
If you want a comma and question mark, simply say “comma” or “question mark” out loud.
It’s the same story for adding “full stop”.
Once you’ve finished your message, check it over and then hit send.
When you’re speaking into the microphone, remember to talk clearly and enunciate words as turning speech into text is very tricky for apps.
It’s also best to dictate your message in a quiet place, to give your microphone the best chance of picking up your words.
You can always edit your dictated message before you send it anyway, to correct any typos that may appear.
