I just tried it with a couple of (Hebrew) voicenotes that were posted on a family chat. While it's obviously not accurate, especially with some Yiddish and English mixed in, but I was definitely able to get the gist of a 58 second message, and the 11 second message followup was even more accurate, despite it being mostly names.

Just forwarded a VN from my daughter. Totally useless. Hebrew seems better.

On Samsungs it's called live caption.
The issue there is that you still have to play the whole VN and have to catch the text.

What's the point in the new "reactions" especially in a group chat, you don't even know who reacted
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Is this fully rolled out? I still only seem to get the 6 reaction emojis. Do I need to update?

Welcome to the forums!

Back in the day symbian was a very popular OS
For curiosity's sake, what's your connection with WhatsApp plus?

Did the recent WhatsApp update give group admins the ability to delete posts from other users?
