How to send WhatsApp messages without typing

Google launched a feature on its Google Assistant back in 2015, which lets you send WhatsApp messages without typing. The following year, Apple’s Siri introduced the same feature. With this, messages can be sent through a voice from third-party apps. To send messages without typing, you need to go to Settings on the Google app and then click on your profile photo on the right corner of Google Assistant. Further, scroll down to Personal Result and turn on this function.

Google requires you to say the wake word “Hey Google” to activate the Google Assistant. You can now say, “send a WhatsApp message to.” Following this, you will have to take the name of the person you want to message on WhatsApp. Google Assistant will ask you what message you want to send. Now, speak out aloud the message that you want to convey and it will be sent without you having to use your fingers at all to type. With this, you can send WhatsApp messages with the help of Google Assistant without typing.

What’s next on WhatsApp

A host of new WhatsApp features, such as Voice Waveforms, are expected to arrive in the coming months.
