Clubhouse's latest feature lets users invite friends into private audio chats
by Usman Khan Lodhi
The audio-based social app Clubhouse unveiled a new feature today. It's called Wave and is supposed to make inviting people to audio chats easier. The feature is presently available for all users on iOS and Android.
The firm revealed that around 700,000 rooms are created on the app each day; however, it stressed that "it's quite often the smaller private moments among friends that put smiles on faces." The feature is being introduced to assist users in creating small and private gatherings, according to the firm.
To start a conversation with friends appearing in Hallways on Clubhouse, users would just need to Wave at them. This can be done by either swiping right on the Hallway or pressing the dots icon at the bottom left of the screen and tapping the wave button next to the person that you'd like to talk to.
The invited users would receive a notification and if they're open to chatting, they can join. The created rooms will be initially private, but they can be later opened up.

WhatsApp may soon transcribe your voice messages
by Anmol Mehrotra
WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will transcribe voice notes for users, so they don't have to listen to audio messages.
The feature was first spotted by WABetaInfo and is currently under development. Furthermore, the website notes that transcription will be done locally on the user's phone so Facebook will not have access to the audio recordings. The transcription, however, will be used by Apple to improve its speech recognition technology and is totally optional.
The transcribed messages will be stored locally so you can access them any time in the future without having to transcribe the message again. WhatsApp users can also jump to a specific timestamp if they don't need transcription for the whole message. Currently, the feature is in development for iOS users and there is no word on if or when the feature will be available for Android users. However, WhatsApp has a decent track record of bringing major features to both iOS and Android so we might see some solution for Android users in the future.
WhatsApp is expected to roll out the feature to iOS beta users in the near future. For now, there is no word on when the feature will start rolling out to WhatsApp for iOS users.
