Head straight into the Google Play Store and make sure you’ve got the latest version of WhatsApp installed on your android smartphone. While Iphone users can do same by going to Apple App Store.

Then follow these below steps:

  • Launch the WhatsApp application
  • Open a chat with the contact you want to speak to
  • Open up the chat keyboard, where you’d normally type messages
  • Look for a microphone icon (not the one next to the chat bar): on Android, it’s black and in the top right, and on iPhone it’s in the very bottom right of the screen

If you want a comma and a question mark, simply say "comma" or "question mark" out loud. It's the same story for adding "full stop".

Once you've finished your message, check it over and then hit send.

When you're speaking into the microphone, remember to talk clearly and enunciate words – as turning speech into text is very tricky for apps.
It's also best to dictate your message in a quiet place, to give your microphone the best chance of picking up your words.

You can always edit your dictated message before you send it anyway, to correct any typos that may appear.
