WhatsApp and Telegram, are two of the popular messenger app you will find today. They have both Android and iOS versions, which makes it impossible for you to find a person without having one or both apps on his or her mobile device. But have you ever find yourself in a situation where you want to forward an important voice message from your WhatsApp messenger to a colleague or family member, only to discover that he or she doesn’t make use of WhatsApp but rather Telegram alone. Your next thoughts will be, how can you achieve this? This is because WhatsApp audio file format is not mp3.
So, how can you then send WhatsApp audio messages to Telegram?

Like I said earlier, the WhatsApp audio file format is not in mp3, this makes it even impossible for you to play it on your mobile phone using any of your music players. If you can check your WhatsApp media file folder, you will discover that the audio messages sent to you normally have a “.opus” file extension. An example of such an audio file will appear like this: “PTP-20210815-WA0005.opus”. You can only play this audio file on your mobile phone by converting it to mp3, using an opus to mp3 converter app.
