How to Send Audio Messages via Message/iMessage from iPhone & iPad

If it’s Whatsapp or WeChat, you get to send something in every format: video, photo, audio etc. But how do you send audio messages in the default Messaging app?

Even though there are several clients like Whatsapp, iMessage still rules supreme when it comes to communication between iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch and Mac users. Let’s accept it: iMessage is far more expansive and easy to use than Whatsapp. And the fact that Mac has iMessage makes it even better.

For all its glory, iMessage only lets you send photos by default (as far as media content is concerned). From within the Messages app, you can only send a photo that you just took or from the camera roll.

But from other apps, integration has allowed for sending audio messages too. So if you’re looking to send an audio message through Message / iMessage, here’s what you need to do:

Step #1. Open the Voice Memo app.

Step #2. Record your message.

Step #3. Once you’ve recorded the message, it appears right on top of the list of all the voice memos you’ve got.

Step #4. Tap on the ‘blue’ icon right next to the voice memo.

Step #5. Now tap on Share.

Step #6. Select Message.

Step #7. Alternatively, you can also tap on a voice message from the list and hit Share directly. Again, select Message.

Step #8. A new Message with the audio attached opens up!

Send Audio Messages via iMessage from iPhone

If the recipient uses iMessage, the message is sent as an iMessage. If not, the message goes as MMS and charges apply.

So the next time you want to send an audio message to someone who’s using iMessage (or who doesn’t have Whatsapp installed), there’s a way you can get it done.

The message gets sent as an .m4a file.
