In addition to text messages, Whatsapp also allows users to send messages or voice memos. This feature was not used much initially but gradually more and more users are appreciating and using it continuously, especially when there are many things to say to a friend or family member or colleague and you want to avoid wasting time in writing. When a voice message is recorded and sent via Whatsapp, the recipient is invited to download the audio file and then listen to it (all this happens automatically, as happens for the photos and video files that are received).
We have already seen how to extract or save video or photo files from Whatsapp on the PC (both from iPhone and Android device); below we will see how extract or save Whatsapp Voice Memos from iPhone / Android to your computer (PC / Mac).
Having the voice message on your computer can have several advantages, such as being able to listen to it better, to store it among the most important things or to use it for other purposes.
