How to “secretly” listen to WhatsApp voice messages

Unfortunately, both audio decryption apps work well only when the recording quality is very high. Otherwise, you may get an utterly incomprehensible transcription of the message. 

But there is one trick that will allow you to quietly listen to the audio message even if you do not have headphones.

  • Enter the chat with a voice message and click the Play button.
  • Immediately bring the phone to your ear with a regular movement, as if you are calling someone: the upper half of the smartphone with the camera and speaker will be right next to your ear, and the screen will turn off.
  • Almost all smartphones recognize this gesture and switch to the phone speaker. Now only you can hear the voice message – just like during a call.
