WhatsApp audio messages have become a useful alternative to communicate. But we cannot deny that many times it becomes annoying.
So, if you are one of those who cannot listen to WhatsApp audios every 5 seconds, then this trick to convert them to text will be very useful for you. Some platforms are already thinking about developing software to switch from audio to text. But while this novelty reaches the messaging platforms, you should know that from now on you can do it yourself.
The trick comes from the hand of a bot that will help you in this process. You will not have to install anything, only that you can use it through WhatsApp in Windows 10 and 11, as well as macOS. The function of this bot is to function as one more contact where you will forward the audios that you want to transcribe. It is important that you know that this bot only “speaks” English, but it is fully compatible with Spanish.

The first thing you have to do to achieve this step is to install the WhatsApp bot on your computer (be it macOS or Windows). To achieve this, you just have to click on this link and “Alfred” bot will be available right there to do the transcriptions. It is important that you are clear that from the desktop version of WhatsApp it is not possible to add a contact to your list. But you can activate the bot and add it normally from your cell phone. Once the bot is ready, you just have to test it.
How to use the bot?
It’s very easy, once you have Alfred among your contacts and ready on your cell phone, you just have to interact with him as if he were another contact. So, from now on, every time someone sends you an audio, you will only have to forward that audio to Alfred and in a few seconds you will have the text of that audio.
We tried them and we have a couple of appreciations. The first thing is that the bot works without problems with audios in Spanish, so that’s not a problem. The other thing is that you cannot expect 100% accuracy of the text, some words will not be faithful to the WhatsApp audio, this will partly depend on the quality of the audio that has been sent to you.
