How to Send an Audio Message on iPhone

Sending audio messages on your iPhone is a convenient way to communicate when typing isn’t practical or when you want to add a personal touch to your messages. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of sending an audio message step by step.

Step 1: Accessing the Messages App

To send an audio message, you need to open the Messages app on your iPhone. Locate and tap on the green speech bubble icon with white dots inside it.

Step 2: Selecting a Conversation

Once you’re in the Messages app, select the conversation with the recipient you wish to send an audio message to. You can either choose an existing conversation from your list of conversations or start a new one by tapping on the compose button.

Step 3: Preparing to Record

Now that you’re in a conversation, locate and tap on the microphone icon next to the text input field. This will activate the audio recording feature.


  • If it’s your first time using this feature, iOS may ask for permission to access your microphone. Make sure to grant permission for it to work properly.
  • You can only send audio messages in one-on-one conversations and not in group chats.

Step 4: Recording Your Message

With the recording feature active, press and hold on the microphone button and start speaking your message. A waveform animation will indicate that your voice is being recorded.

Tips for Recording:

  • Speak clearly and at an audible volume.
  • Avoid background noise for better audio quality.
  • Keep your finger on the microphone button until you finish recording your message.

Step 5: Sending Your Audio Message

Once you’re done recording, release your finger from the microphone button. A preview of your audio message will appear. To send it, simply swipe up on the preview or tap on the arrow icon.


  • If you’re not satisfied with the recorded message, you can tap on the “Cancel” button to discard it and start over.

Congratulations! You have successfully sent an audio message using your iPhone. Now you can enjoy a more personal and expressive way of communication with your friends and family.
