Hi, I noticed that when using Smart Key Voice Input in WhatsApp it adds something in the beginning - "wiadomość" (in English: message). Problem occurs for me only in WhatsApp. It also happens when I use smart key outside of the app and then open the app to paste the text.

Problem doesn't occur when using Gboard voice input.


  • Same here in English, with word "message" before the text.

  • Problem still exists in 32.2040.2040.23

    Could you please provide the info whether the bug is on your side or WhatsApp's?

  • Hey @Kazionator, just to clarify, does this issue occur while using voice typing on Whatsapp?

  • Yes, but only when I use it from smart key option (double tap on power button).

  • Problem still exists in WW_32.2050.2050.29

    +1, same issue same version

    Note that the voice to text input button on the keyboard works ok. Also,if using the smart key voice input outside of WhatsApp, and then pasting into WhatsApp from the clipboard works fine too.

    But directly using the smart key voice input within WhatsApp always adds 'message' to the text.

    I suspect something to do with the text pasting, as the word 'message' exists in the input box before input but is normally removed once you start typing.

  • I have this Problem in German too

  • There will be a fix coming up in the Android 13 update.
