Audio messages on WhatsApp are the function responsible for much of the app’s success. In Brazil, this type of communication on WhatsApp is very popular.
Not everyone, however, knows how to use audio messages well. It is difficult to have a good voice, speak at an easy to understand speed and other details of this type of communication. Listening to audio more slowly can help you understand garbled messages. It also helps a lot to share snippets of audio messages and the fastest way can be turning them into text.
Transcriber app (Android, similar app for iOS) performs the task of slowing down or transcribing WhatsApp audio.
The application also helps to listen to audio anonymously, which means listening through the phone’s earpiece. This function is useful when you want to listen to an audio message in public but have privacy (only you listen) and you don’t have headphones available.
Free, the app is funded by advertisements. It can occasionally get a little slow when there are video advertisements, for example. Fortunately, the advertisement can be bypassed by tapping the button to go straight to the app.
