We have all been there. You are in a text conversation for 10 minutes and are tired of talking with your thumb. This is the source of the audio message.
You speak on the phone and then send voice messages directly to your friends and family. It’s like a one-way call, and it’s more personal than sending text messages.
I don’t know you, but compared to endless robocall, I ignore calls more often. Tap or click Insider Tactics to end the automatic call.
Pick up your iPhone or Android and I will guide you to send an audio message. This is fun and a great way to keep in touch with relatives far away.
Use iPhone to send audio messages
When texting from iPhone, sending audio messages is as easy as tapping a button. In other words, as long as you want to send a text message to someone who also has an iPhone. If your friend is using Android, it’s trickier.
First, here is how to send audio messages from one iPhone to another.
●Open the conversation and click the record icon on the right side of the text box.
●Record your information and make sure to always keep your finger on the bottom. When finished, release your finger.
If you want to listen to the recording, please click the play button. Click the “X”
Note: After your email is sent, it will disappear within two minutes. If you want to keep the voice message in the conversation, navigate to Settings.
●Click on the message and scroll down to the audio message.
●Then, click Expire. Here, you can change the default expiration time from two minutes to never.
If you have an iPhone and want to send audio messages to Android users, please open the Voice Memo app that comes with each iPhone.
Record the memo, and then share the record as an attachment. Of course, you are not using a messaging application, but it has the same effect.

Use Android phone to send audio message
When you have an Android phone, sending audio messages is not as simple as simply clicking a button. You have three options.
1. Use Android Messages
To send audio clips through Google’s stock Messenger app, just follow the simple steps below.
●Under “Settings”, grant Android messaging permission to use the microphone.
● Open the conversation.
●Click the green + sign on the left side of the text box.
●Tap the microphone icon at the bottom of the screen.
Then, hold down the button while recording the message.
2. Use the recording app
Just like the iPhone, Android comes with a default voice recording application. On the home screen, navigate to the built-in voice recorder application. Click record, speak your message, and send the audio clip to a friend.
If you don’t want to do this every time, you can also try the built-in helper of your smartphone.

3. Use Google Assistant
This is the simplest method of all methods. First, say “Hey Google” or “OK, Google”. Then, tell Google Assistant to send the voice message to the person you want to contact. After speaking the contact’s name, Google Assistant will automatically start recording.
However, please make sure you have collected your thoughts in advance-if the assistant notices any long pauses, it will stop your recording.
Then, the Google Assistant will ask you if you are ready to send the recording. If you are ready, please say “Yes” or “No” to cancel. Like Apple users, you can choose to press the “Play” button to listen or “Cancel” to replay.
