WhatsApp for iPhone will soon receive an exclusive – transcribing voice messages into text

Published

on

The team of the popular messenger WhatsApp has begun testing a new convenient feature – converting voice messages to text.

This opportunity will be very convenient in conditions when for some reason you cannot listen to the message, but you can read it. Previously, this functionality was not built into the messenger itself, although it could be implemented using third-party applications.

The innovation in the next beta version of WhatsApp drew attention to the thematic resource WABetaInfo. This feature is optional and implemented using Apple Speech Recognition technology. The user must give permission to send data to Apple servers for decryption.

Then a new Transcript section with decryption appears, in which it is also possible to jump to a specific place in the message. The decrypted message is saved in the local WhatsApp database and if you need to view the message again, you will not need to re-send the data to the Apple servers.

Geely founder sets up a smartphone manufacturing venture

Published

on

Chinese carmaker Geely, which owns Volvo, has announced that its chairman Eric Li, also known as Li Shufu, is setting up a new company that will make premium smartphones.

Founder Zhejiang Geely Holding’s new venture will aim to launch its first smartphone by 2023 and sell 3 million units in the first year.

Lee had previously made futuristic bets on ventures such as flying cars and helicopter taxis. In a smartphone market that is no longer growing in China, the new company will have to compete with Apple, Xiaomi and other established manufacturers.

Notably, smartphone makers are looking to enter the electric vehicle market, realizing that the smartphone boom is coming to an end. However, Geely is the first car manufacturer to try to move in the opposite direction.

The company said in a statement to Reuters that the new company will be called Hubei Xingji Shidai Technology Co Ltd and that it has already signed an agreement with the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone to establish a headquarters in the central city of Wuhan. Li owns 55% of Xingji Shidai. The project will be financed with an investment of $ 1.55 billion.

Samsung mobile head Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh) confirmed that he has made two work visits to the United States this year to obtain more stocks of chips and application processors needed to make smartphones.

According to TheElec, Tae Moon Ro met with major component manufacturers in the US to get more chips and asked major partners to increase shipments for the South Korean tech giant. However, according to sources close to this, the trips did not end as Samsung planned.

The first trip was made in March, the second took place in July. The source also added that the president of Samsung Mobile visited the headquarters of the global SoC maker in July and asked for additional chips, but was ultimately denied.

The component maker responded to Tae Moon Ro that the company also wants to increase its total supply, but cannot yet increase shipments for Samsung. The source adds that Tae Moon Ro was also accompanied by the vice president, who stayed in the United States after the division head’s visit and returned to South Korea after staying there for about three months.

However, a company spokesman said that their trips still cannot be called completely unsuccessful, since they really led to the fact that the brand was able to increase sales a little.
