which ends today, of course, One of the most remarkable weeks in terms of WhatsApp And the number of headlines it’s starred in, and all of them because of the new features, and they’re all very interesting and expected. Both the users of this service, which is by far the most widely used in the world to date, and Meta have reasons to be quite happy, because a few weeks like this and, without a doubt, the service will manage to catch up with its With the main competitors, to a lesser extent in terms of functions.
Last Tuesday confirmed the deployment of a function we’ve been waiting for for years, and we learned that testing has begun in 2022. I am referring, of course, to the possibility of using the same account on multiple smartphones. It caters to multi-device support Which has already started last year, and which is already common in other services. However, it’s possible that you still can’t access the so-called Companion Mode, as WhatsApp indicated that the rollout will be complete over the next few weeks.
On the other hand, just a few days ago we learned that WhatsApp is also starting to test the transfer of conversation history directly through the local network on Android, ie avoiding the need to transfer files between two devices that they are less are at a distance of one meter from each other. It is necessary to upload them from the source to the cloud from Google and then download them from Google to the target device. It’s not yet clear when this will reach the final version, and whether it will also come to iOS, but it’s definitely a big step forward.
Now, at the end of the week, we find another function in tests discovered by WABetainfo, and it will transcribe whatsapp voice notes to text, A function that, in my opinion, is more useful than the two that I mentioned above, and that both seem very necessary to me and that they greatly improve the service.
From accessibility reasons to how unbearable it can be to listen to an unwanted audio note lasting several minutes, the list of reasons why this feature seems like a huge hit is nearly endless, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. type thinks.
As always with WhatsApp beta, There is no information about when it will start reaching the users., although taking into account that we are talking about a complex task and with notable economic costs (due to the computing power needed to perform the conversion) it is likely that we still have to enjoy it Will have to wait a bit. Wait a while, which will be worth it in any case.
