Sometimes, it’s more convenient to record an audio message than type out text using the software keyboard. Times when I’m resting on the couch or too busy dealing with projects, I find it a bit comfortable to speak out the message and hit the send button.
Sending voice messages using iMessage from an iOS device is pretty straightforward. However, if you are new Apple ecosystem and aren’t aware of how this useful feature works, let me help you get started!
How to Record and Send Audio Messages via iMessage on iOS Device
Step #1. Launch Messages app on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, select the conversation thread.
Step #3. Next, touch and hold the tiny microphone icon and then speak out the message.
Once you have recorded the message, hit the arrow button to send it.
That’s pretty much it! Now that you know how to use this neat feature, do take advantage of it to communicate comfortably.
As we are talking about iMessaging, I would recommend you make the best use of dictation (Settings → General → Keyboard → Enable Dictation). It will help you easily enter text using your voice. Just hit the microphone icon in the keyboard → speak the message and send it.
Even though there are many popular messaging apps, Apple’s iMessage remains the favorite for those who prefer more security and privacy. Moreover, the likes of Animoji, Memoji, and Apple Pay Cash have made it feature rich.
