What is the method to convert WhatsApp voice memos to MP3?
The method to convert WhatsApp voice notes to MP3 is based on the use of a file converter since the application compresses the audios in the .opus extension. Either from your PC or mobile device, you will need a conversion tool before sharing audio on any device or using voice memos for other purposes.

Once you perform the above action, your audio will be stored in the .M4A format. For this reason, you will need to convert it to the .MP3 format. To achieve this, download the application ‘The Audio Converter’ from the App Store and proceed to access this tool once the installation is complete.
Choose the file that you previously saved with the .M4A format and select the ‘.MP3 MP3 Audio’ format and wait a few seconds while the tool performs the conversion process.
