How to send voice messages

WhatsApp voice messaging allows you to instantly communicate with contacts and groups. You can use it to deliver important and time-sensitive information. As such, all voice messages are downloaded automatically.

Send a voice message
  1. Open an individual or group chat.
  2. Tap and hold the microphone
    and start speaking.
  3. Once finished, remove your finger from the microphone
    . The voice message will automatically send.
While recording a voice message, you can slide left to cancel it.
Send a longer voice message
  1. Open an individual or group chat.
  2. Tap and hold the microphone
    and start speaking.
  3. Slide up to lock hands-free recording.
You can also tap the red pause button
to pause recording or preview a draft of your message. Tap the red mic icon
to continue recording within the same voice message.
On sent voice messages you'll see:
  • A gray microphone
    for voice messages that haven’t been played by all recipients (but might have been played by some).
  • A blue microphone
    for voice messages that all recipients have played.
Note: On some phones, you might have to wait for a second before speaking if the beginning of your message isn't recorded.
