Voice recognition for iOS

Create tasks using voice input on iOS. Asana mobile can transcribe audio into text and create tasks based on the results of the transcription.

You can either:

  • Hold the Quick Add plus icon to create a task immediately using voice, or
  • Tap on the Quick Add plus icon to preview and edit the task before automatically creating it.

You can create a task with audio up to 1:30 minutes. Asana mobile will use the first line of the transcribed text for the title of the task and the full transcription will be displayed in the task description.

The transcription will be limited to the language configured on the iOS device and may not be available in all languages.
