Are you tired of typing long messages on your Android device? Well, good news!

You can now send voice messages instead. Voice messages are a convenient way to communicate with friends and family when you don’t have the time or patience to type out a message. In this tutorial, we will show you how to send voice messages on Android.

Step 1: Open Your Messaging App

To get started, open your messaging app. This can be the default messaging app that came with your device or a third-party app like WhatsApp or Messenger.

Step 2: Select a Contact

Next, select the contact you want to send a voice message to. You can either choose a contact from your contacts list or enter their phone number manually.

Step 3: Tap on the Microphone Icon

Once you have selected the contact, look for the microphone icon in your messaging app. This icon is usually located next to the text input field.

Step 4: Record Your Voice Message

To start recording your voice message, tap and hold the microphone icon. While holding it down, speak clearly into your device’s microphone. You can record as long as you want by keeping the icon pressed.

Tips for Recording:

  • Speak Clearly: Make sure to speak clearly and loudly so that the recipient can hear your message properly.
  • Avoid Background Noise: Find a quiet place to record your voice message to minimize any background noise that may interfere with the clarity of your message.
  • Keep it Concise: Try to keep your voice messages short and to the point. Remember, the recipient may be listening to your message in a public place.

Step 5: Release the Microphone Icon

Once you have finished recording your voice message, simply release the microphone icon. The message will be automatically sent to the contact you selected.

Step 6: Listen to Voice Messages

If someone sends you a voice message, it will appear in your messaging app as an audio file. Simply tap on the message to listen to it. You can usually play, pause, and rewind the message as needed.


Some messaging apps may require you to have an internet connection to send or receive voice messages. Make sure you have a stable internet connection before attempting to send a voice message.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to send voice messages on Android. Now you can save time and effort by communicating through quick and convenient voice messages.
